Beauty Combing Her Hair

Series; Eight Famous Views of Women

Beauty Combing Her Hair - Charming portrait of a smiling beauty smoothing the top of her head with a comb, the rest of her hair tied back with a white sash, a few loose wisps framing her face. An attractive okubi-e or large head print, with a subtle mica background.

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.
