Moatside Prostitute  by Utamaro (1750 - 1806)

Utamaro (1750 - 1806) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Moatside Prostitute
Series; Five Shades of Ink in the Northern Quarter

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.

Moatside Prostitute - Wonderful old reprint of this fantastic Utamaro subject. The young woman with her kimono fallen away from her breast. Nice fine line work in the hair.
