Applying Makeup to the Neck  by Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864)

Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Applying Makeup to the Neck
Series; Makeup Mirrors in Modern Style

Woodblock reprints - In the 20th century, artists and publishers collaborated to recreate famous woodblock prints for interested Japanese collectors and Westerners looking for rare designs. New blocks were made, and the prints were painstakingly printed by artisan printers in the same method as the 19th century originals - one block for each color. Woodblock reprints were an opportunity to collect and enjoy a famous design at a small fraction of the price of an original. They still are today.

Applying Makeup to the Neck - Lovely image from a series presenting beauties as reflected in a black lacquer hand mirror. Here, a young woman applies makeup to the back of her neck, smiling happily. She holds a second mirror in her other hand to see the nape of her neck, an area considered very sensual in Japanese art. A beautiful image with fine line work and delicate detail, not often seen in reprint.

Image Size - 14 3/8" x 9 3/4" + margins as shown
