Beauty with a Goldfish by Utamaro (1750 - 1806)

Utamaro (1750 - 1806) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Beauty with a Goldfish

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 design of a beauty carrying a goldfish in a small glass bowl suspended from a cord. She smiles happily as she looks ahead, a few loose hairs framing her face and neck. She wears a simple black and white checked kimono, a cloth wrapped protectively around her hairdo. An attractive Utamaro subject rarely seen in reprint.

Image Size - 14 7/8" x 9 7/8" + margins as shown
