Nakamura Noshio II as Gotobei's Daughter, Tokujo by Kunimasa (1773 - 1810)

Kunimasa (1773 - 1810) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Nakamura Noshio II as Gotobei's Daughter, Tokujo

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 - Terrific kabuki portrait of Nakamura Noshio II Tokujo, the daughter of as Gotobei in the play " Kaeribana yuki no Yoshitsune." She carries a large wooden chest over her shoulder, a tie-dyed cloth wrapped protectively around her elegant hairstyle. She wears a checked outer robe over a rust colored kimono and pale rose tie-dyed under robe. Nicely detailed with embossing to indicate the fold in the head scarf. Rarely seen in reprint.

Artist - Kunimasa (1773 - 1810)
Image Size - 15" x 9 7/8"
Condition - This print with excellent color and detail as shown. Please see photos for details. Good overall.
