The Coquettish Type by Eisen (1790 - 1848)

Eisen (1790 - 1848) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
The Coquettish Type
Series; Twelve Views of Modern Women

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.

The Coquettish Type - Charming image of a flirtatious young geisha biting down on a tissue while looking slyly out of the corners of her eyes. Her hair is piled high on her head with a large tortoise shell comb. Her pale blue under robe is beautifully patterned with butterflies, the soft colors contrasting nicely her solid black kimono. A cartouche at upper right takes the form of a scroll unrolling to reveal a handsome landscape with Mt. Fuji towering in the background. An attractive Edo era design.
