Spring: Cherry Blossoms at Goten-yama - Beautiful design of a woman running a food stand underneath the blossoming cherry trees at Goten Hill. She smiles as she watches a young boy playing in the grass nearby. Fishing boats are moored off the coast in the background. A lovely Hiroshige pillar print and an excellent choice for display.
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.
