Hokusai (1760 - 1849) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Girl with a Hozuki in her Mouth
Series; Seven Useless Habits

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.

Girl with a Hozuki in her Mouth - Intriguing image of two beauties, one blowing a hozuki or ground cherry clacker in her mouth while the other applies lipstick using a hand mirror. Lovely fine detail in the expressions and hairstyles. An interesting beauty print by Hokusai with a shimmering white mica background.
