Beauties Relaxing by Harunobu (1724 - 1770)

Harunobu (1724 - 1770) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Beauties Relaxing

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.

Ishu Kankokai - The publisher Ishu Kankokai of Tokyo is best known for its commemorative edition prints of shin-hanga beauties by Torii Kotondo and Hashiguchi Goyo, but they also did fine quality reprints in the 1980s of classic ukiyo-e works by masters such as Hokusai and Utamaro.

Comments - Attractive scene of two beauties relaxing at the edge of a room, one smoking a slender pipe. The other leans back as she chats, a large collapsible paper lantern patterned with paulownia resting on the ground nearby. A young girl emerges from the doorway curtains at right, waiving her hand as she looks over her shoulder. Lovely soft color in this handsome design.
