Harunobu (1724 - 1770) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Couple in a Courtyard

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 scene of a couple relaxing in an enclosed courtyard with a view overlooking the water beyond. The young man kicks off one sandal as he leans back, a fan in hand, looking at his companion. She kneels atop the bench, adjusting a hairpin, dressed in an informal striped kimono tied loosely around her. A few birds flutter above the bridge in the distance above a bridge crossing the river. Nicely detailed with embossing on fan.
