Night Rain at Hashiba by Buncho (active 1765 - 1792)

Buncho (active 1765 - 1792) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Night Rain at Hashiba

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 Buncho design of a courtesan standing on the verandah in the Hashiba district in Edo. She runs a comb through her hair as she looks out at water below, rain slanting across the evening sky. A boat ferries a passenger across the river, and stacks of wood at a lumberyard can be seen on the opposite shore. A charming image with soft color and fine line work.

Artist - Buncho (active 1765 - 1792)
Image Size - 9 3/4" x 7 1/4"
Condition - This print with excellent color and detail as shown. Slight wrinkling at top edge. Please see photos for details. Good overall.
