Beauty Cutting Paper by Koryusai (1735 - 1790)

Koryusai (1735 - 1790) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Beauty Cutting Paper

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 - Handsome design of two beauties in an interior, one absorbed in the task of carefully cutting shapes from layers of paper. She wears a lovely iris print kimono, while her companion's robe features a butterfly pattern. Scraps of paper litter the floor and a finely drawn reed blind screens the pine tree in the garden behind them. An attractive subject rarely seen in reprint.
