Kuniyoshi (1797 - 1861) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
The Eastern Capital
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.
Ommayagashi - Terrific Kuniyoshi view of a group of locals walking along Ommaya Embankment of the Sumida River in Edo. Four men are huddled under umbrellas to protect them from the rain, while another walks along the riverbank with just a dotted scarf over his head. Nice detail in the falling rain, with soft shading in the water and sky.
