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.

Naniwaya Okita - Beautiful portrait showing the young waitress Okita serving a cup of tea at the Naniwaya teahouse, located beside the Zuijin Gate at Asakusa Temple. Lovely soft colors, with fine line work in the hairstyle and intricate scrolling pattern of the black obi. A classic Utamaro subject with a shimmering mica background.
