The Amused Type: Sumida River  by Eisen (1790 - 1848)

Eisen (1790 - 1848) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
The Amused Type: Sumida River
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 Amused Type: Sumida River - Charming portrait of a beauty playing a hand game called ken. She smiles happily as she gestures with both hands. She wears a plaid kimono is soft colors, the white lines delicately embossed, a roll of tissues and a pick for playing the shamisen tacked into her obi. An inset at upper left takes the form of a scroll unrolling, showing a view of boats along the Sumida River. An attractive image with a dusting of shimmering mica in the background.
