A Woman after the Bath and a Black Dog - Wonderful scene of two beauties in a traditional bathhouse. One is seated in a deep wooden tub washing her back. Her companion has put on a tie-dyed cotton kimono after her bath, drying the side of her neck with her sleeve as she watches a small black dog wandering about the room. A charming design with nice detail in the interior setting.

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.
