Six Masterworks by Kitagawa Utamaro - This is a rare, extra-large format reprint from a series of "Six Masterworks by Kitagawa Utamaro," published by Shobisha of Tokyo in Showa 54 (1979). These classic designs by Utamaro are beautifully printed with crisp line work, and measure over than 20 inches tall! Each features the publisher's seal in the margin. We rarely see reprints in this size. A great choice for display.
