Courtesan Arranging Her Hair 1804

Courtesan Arranging Her Hair 1804 is an example of a print with minor damage where the changes occurring over more than 200 years have created a 'patina' if you will, that is now a feature rather than a detraction . . . Now, reproduced and available in our '18th and 19th Century Japanese Prints' gallery of over 300 vintage prints . . .


"Courtesan Arranging Her Hair 1804" . . . A courtesan arranging her hair in front of a mirror. A page from a later impression of the series, Tokaido Road, with Kyoka poetry. From an original 19th century (1804) woodcut, Goyu, by Katsushika Hokusai. All Rights Reserved 2012 padre art . . .
