Evening Cool at Ryogoku by Eisen (1790 - 1848)

Eisen (1790 - 1848) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Evening Cool at Ryogoku

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 - Beautiful image of a beauty carrying a shamisen, looking over her shoulder at the snow falling heavily over the crowded Ryogoku Bridge outside. A sumptuous meal has been set out on a low lacquer table at right, with small cups floating on a bowl of water on the floor. An attractive design with a nicely detailed setting, rarely seen in reprint.

Artist - Eisen (1790 - 1848)
Image Size - 15" x 10 1/8" + margins as shown
Condition - This print with excellent color and detail as shown. Slight toning, small spot. Please see photos for details. Good overall.
