Peacock by Yamaguchi Soken (1759 - 1818)

Yamaguchi Soken (1759 - 1818) Japanese Woodblock Reprint

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 - Attractive image of a peacock perched atop a rocky outcrop, looking down intently. The bold shape of the rock contrasts nicely with the delicate blossoms at lower left and the slender bamboo stems at upper right. A striking design.

Artist - Yamaguchi Soken (1759 - 1818)
Image Size - 14 1/2" x 6 1/4" + margins as shown
Condition - This print with excellent color as shown. Please see photos for details.
