The Fancy-Free Type by Utamaro (1750 - 1806)

Utamaro (1750 - 1806) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
The Fancy-Free Type
Series; Ten Classes of Women's Physiognomy

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.

The Fancy-Free Type - Beautiful reprint of this famous Utamaro masterwork. A lovely young woman is returning from a bath, dressed in a loose cotton robe patterned with circular motifs of birds in flight. She dries her hands on a towel as she looks over her shoulder, smiling. A wonderful design with soft color and fine line work.
