Antique Japanese Framed Woodblock Print Depicting a Man and Woman Discussing

$950

About

An antique Japanese woodblock print from the 19th century depicting a man and a woman discussing. Created in Japan during the 19th century, this woodblock print showcases an interior scene depicting a man and a woman discussing with each other. The man represented on the left, half hidden behind a screen, is leaning forward on a stool looking at his wide. His head casually resting on his hand confers a sense of intimacy. Facing him and popping subtly from the background thanks to her pink robe, the woman is looking up to her husband. The décor, highly minimalist, is simply made of a calligraphy print, the screen and a rug. The process of woodblock printing would start with an artist’s drawing that would be transferred from paper to a cherry-wood block, which was carved and then inked, before blank sheets of paper were laid on top. Set inside a black frame and secured under glass, this Japanese 19th century woodblock print will be a great addition to any wall, perhaps hung above a credenza, altar table or sofa.
