Love That Meets Each Night by Utamaro (1750 - 1806)

Utamaro (1750 - 1806) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Love That Meets Each Night
Series; Anthology of Poems: The Love Section

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.

Love That Meets Each Night - Lovely Utamaro portrait of a young woman reading a love letter. She is wistfully contemplating her young lover, whom she "meets" each night in writing. A fantastic design with fine line work in the hair and a shimmering mica background.
