Japanese Woodblock Print 12 - Girl Under Plum Tree by Harunobu Suzuki
Woodblock print (Woodblock printing in Japan (木版画, moku-hanga) is a technique best known for its use in the ukiyo-e artistic genre of single sheets, but it was also used for printing books in the same period)
Suzuki Harunobu (鈴木 春信; c. 1725 - 7 July 1770) was a Japanese designer of woodblock print artist in the Ukiyo-e style. He was an innovator, the first to produce full-colour prints (nishiki-e) in 1765, rendering obsolete the former modes of two- and three-colour prints. Harunobu used many special techniques and depicted a wide variety of subjects, from classical poems to contemporary beauties. Like many artists of his day, Harunobu also produced a number of erotic art, Shunga (春画). During his lifetime and shortly afterwards, many artists imitated his style.
