Beauties Grooming by Kiyohiro (active 1737 - 1776)

Kiyohiro (active 1737 - 1776) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Beauties Grooming

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 scene of two young geisha on a verandah on a summer day. Dressed in light cotton kimono, they sit on the edge of the porch, one clipping toe nails, the other soaking and washing her feet in a wooden tub. A charming scene showing two young beauties during their daily beauty routine.
