Eishi (1756 - 1829) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Ono no Komachi

Series; Parodies of Six Poetic Immortals

Ono no Komachi - Lovely portrait of the poet Ono no Komachi from Eishi's "Parodies of Six Poetic Immortals. She smiles sweetly as she looks down at the pink rose she is holding, gently fingering the petals. Her long hair falls loosely over her shoulders, adorned with several hairpins at the top of her head, and a small lock tied to the side with a violet ribbon. A charming design, 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.
