Hokusai (1760 - 1849) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Two Beauties and a Looking Glass

Comments - Terrific Hokusai design of two young beauties fascinated by a telescope, an intriguing Western import. One woman peers through the end of the instrument as her companion watches her closely. A charming design with attractive color, beautifully detailed with a shimmering white mica background.

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.
