The Thirty-six Immortals of Poetry

Masterpieces of Old Japanese Color Prints
Nippon Mokuhan Gasui

Masterpieces of Old Japanese Color Prints - This is a lovely old reprint from the "Masterpieces of Old Japanese Color Prints" published by the Nippon Gasui-sha circa 1920s. Sold by subscription, the publisher issued three new woodblock prints each month. The subjects in this series range from designs by Mitsuoki Tosa and painters from the Kano school to ukiyo-e masters Hiroshige and Utamaro. A wonderful opportunity to collect some rarely seen and beautiful works by these Japanese masters.

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.

Artist - Ogata Korin (1658 - 1716)
