Shunman (1757 - 1820) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Beauties under the Cherry Blossoms

Comments - Lovely design of two beauties on a stroll through the countryside, pausing for a rest under a blossoming cherry tree. Both women relax with a pipe as a small stream rushes across the lower right. A lovely spring scene with fine detail and delicate shading in the cherry blossoms.

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.
