Eishi (1756 - 1829) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Beauty Combing Her Hair

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 - Lovely Utamaro design of a beauty kneeling before a mirror stand, using a comb to put the finishing touches on her elegant hairstyle. An attendant carries a kimono over her shoulder and a small purse dangling from her lips. A symbol from the Tale of Genji appears at upper left. A charming Edo era beauty subject.

Artist - Eishi (1756 - 1829)
Image Size - 14 3/4" x 9 1/2" + margins as shown
Condition - With excellent color and detail as shown. Slight paper remnants on reverse at left center edge from previous folio mounting. Please see photos for details. Very nice overall.
