Night Rain, Clearing Weather of the Lattice - Unusual beauty design by Hiroshige of a young courtesan on a verandah handing a pipe down to her lover below. She wears a beautiful black kimono with a pattern of morning glories growing on a bamboo trellis. The circular inset shows beauties strolling in an evening rain. A finely detailed design.

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.
