In Reply to: utamaro reproduction? posted by judith on July 16, 2002 at 01:55:01:
Uchida in Kyoto are still making woodblock prints using traditional methods (they have support from the Japanese Government) and I am pretty sure that the print you are referring to is one they make. Unfortuneately I recollect that it is in a reduced size fromthe original Utamaro.
: after reading the info on reproductions on the shogun gallery cite, I believe I have a repro but still with questions. The print was enclosed in a brown paper wrapper. A label reads Mitsukoshi. My research tells me this is/was a department shore in Tokyo. More info whould be appreciated.Also a title. The print is bijanga, the woman holds a light blue colored pipe (bowl is wider at the end) to her lips, no smoke. Her gown is designed and in green and red.As a suspected repro does this print have any value? Thank you very much. All I have read so far is so great to me. Judith
