Beauty under the Mosquito Netting
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. A great opportunity to acquire a fine reprint of a classic ukiyo-e design.
Comments - Lovely image of a young beauty kneeling behind the mosquito netting used in summertime, reading a letter by the light of a lamp. She leans forward, examining the message closely as she holds the scroll between her hands. Incredibly fine line work in the netting, with delicate embossing of the netting pattern over the beauty's face. A beautiful design.
