Takashima Ohisa by Utamaro (1750 - 1806)

Utamaro (1750 - 1806) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Takashima Ohisa
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.

Takashima Ohisa - Lovely portrait of the beauty Takashima Ohisa in formal kimono holding a round fan, smiling as she looks back over her shoulder. She looks back over her shoulder with a smile, wearing a sheer black patterned kimono over a mauve colored under robe, tied with a green obi with a design of birds in flight. A classic beauty print by Utamaro with fine line work in the hair and a shimmering mica background.
