The Chofu Jewel River  by Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864)

Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
The Chofu Jewel River
Series; Six Modern Jewel-like Faces

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 Chofu Jewel River - Handsome image of a beauty on a pleasure boat enjoying a summer snack of edamame, green soybeans cooked in the pod. She munches contentedly as she looks out over the water, her elbow resting on the side of the boat, dressed in a blue and white cotton kimono. Edamame is still a favorite dish in Japan. A great design with wonderful detail and attractive color.

Image Size - 15" x 9 7/8" + margins as shown
