Beauty by a Brazier by Kuniyoshi (1797 - 1861)

Kuniyoshi (1797 - 1861) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Beauty by a Brazier
Series; Incidents of Everyday Life for the Eight Views and Eight Trigrams

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.

Beauty by a Brazier - Handsome design of a young woman kneeling beside a brazier inside a shop. She rests one elbow on a low wooden table as she reaches into her tobacco pouch to fill her pipe. A pile of wrapped parcels is piled on the floor behind her. An interesting scene from this series pairing beauties with the eight Chinese trigrams (symbols) used for divination. The trigram for this image is "Li." An unusual subject to find in reprint.
