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.

Kisegawa of the Matsubaya with Attendants Onami and Menami - Charming image of a the courtesan Kisegawa of the Matsubaya holding a sheer yellow silk fan, smiling down at a young attendant. The elegantly dressed woman wears a sheer gray outer robe, the checked pattern of her red and white kimono showing through the transparent fabric. An attractive design, rarely seen in reprint.
