Hiroshige (1797 - 1858) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Bird on a Blossoming Branch

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 - Charming kacho-e or birds and flowers print of a green bird perched on a branch of a flowering shrub with pink and red blossoms. A verse runs across the background. Nicely detailed with soft shading on the sky. The first time we've seen this subject in reprint.

Image Size - 8 1/4" x 12 3/8" + margins as shown
