Series; An Array of Dancing Girls of the Present Day
Selected Famous Works - Mainichi Shimbun Publisher

Mainichi Shimbun Publisher - From a fine collection of mid-20th century Utamaro reprints published by Mainichi Shimbun. This small Tokyo publisher carved blocks and reprinted many of the great masterwork designs of the Edo era. Their work was exquisite with an emphasis on quality, not quantity. Note the exceptional detail, carefully shaded printing, fine mica backgrounds, embossing, and other deluxe techniques. Mainichi prints are perfect for the collector or for the highest quality reprint for display.

Heron Maiden - Lovely Utamaro portrait of a young beauty elaborately dressed in a festival costume, representing the Heron Maiden. She wears a sheer silk hat adorned with pale pink blossoms and topped with a peony, and gracefully dances waving two matching fans. The delicately colored large figure is beautifully set off by a subtle, distressed mica background. A charming design, rarely seen in reprint.

Artist - Utamaro (1750 - 1806)
Image Size - 14 3/4" x 9 3/4"
