Harunobu (1724 - 1770) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Poem by Chosui
Series; Fashionable Versions of Ink in Five Colors

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.

Poem by Chosui - Interesting design of a young couple in an interior, the man grabbing hold of the beauty's wrists as he tries to take a love letter from her. She leans forward, extending the letter across her body to keep it away from him. Her blue kimono is patterned with fishing nets hung out to dry, tied with a delicately embossed white obi. The room opens onto a garden with a blossoming cherry tree framing a view of bamboo pipes carrying water to a large tub. A fascinating subject, nicely detailed.
