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 portrait of the mother and son, Yamauba and Kintaro, from a series of prints of the pair done by Utamaro. Charming design of the young Kintaro climbing protectively to his mother’s back while she combs her long beautiful hair. A wonderful Utamaro design with fine detail in the hair and soft color.
