The Courtesan Tsukioka of the Hyogo Establishment by Eisui (active ca. 1790 - 1823)

Eisui (active ca. 1790 - 1823) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
The Courtesan Tsukioka of the Hyogo Establishment

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.

Comments - Lovely portrait of the courtesan Tsukioka drying a red lacquer sake cup with a sheer cloth. She smiles happily, her hair swept into a large smooth bun and tied back with a white cloth band while she works. Beautifully drawn with fine detail in the face and hairstyle. A charming design seldom seen in reprint.

Artist - Eisui (active ca. 1790 - 1823)
Image Size - 14 1/2" x 9 5/8"
Condition - This print with excellent color and detail as shown. Please see photos for details. Good overall.
