Hokusai (1760 - 1849) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Drying a Bolt of Cloth

Takamizawa Reprints - Handsome reprint by the venerable Takamizawa publisher. Takamizawa was known as one of the finest reprint publishers of the 20th century, and produced some of the highest quality ukiyo-e woodblock reprints of all time. Drawing on the traditions and methods of the Edo era, the prints were produced replicating original Edo era colors and printed on beautiful handmade paper. The printers worked with the utmost care and great attention to detail, masterfully reproducing color and line work. All prints bear the red or brown "Takamizawa" seal on the reverse attesting to the Takamizawa publication of these prints. A great opportunity to acquire a fine reprint of a classic ukiyo-e design.

Comments - A charming Edo era scene showing two women stretching fabric over a balcony to dry in the summertime. Lovely scenery beyond with kites flying in the breeze. Wonderful natural colors in this fine old print, with soft shading in the sky and water. A lovely subject, very rare to find in reprint.
