Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Visiting a Temple at Dawn to Unveil a Buddha

Series; Pride of Edo

Visiting a Temple at Dawn to Unveil a Buddha - Charming scene of a beauty sitting up in bed as she combs the back of her hair, her blue and white cotton kimono wrapped loosely about her. Another beauty is still sleeping beside her, the mosquito netting pushed aside as dawn rises. The inset at upper left depicts crowds at a temple to witness the unveiling of a Buddha. An attractive design, nicely detailed and seldom seen in reprint.

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.
