Utamaro (1750 - 1806) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Takashima Ohisa

Series; Renowned Beauties Likened to the Six Immortal Poets

Takashima Ohisa - Lovely portrait of Takashima Ohisa smiling demurely as she looks back over her shoulder, delicately touching the collar of her kimono. Her hair is swept back into a large bun adorned with a ribbon and many hairpins. The inset at upper right shows a falcon perched on a branch above a lake, with a heron alongside a fisherman's fire basket, which forms a picture puzzle sounding like the beauty's name. An attractive design.

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.
