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 beauty Takashima Ohisa in formal kimono holding a round fan, smiling as she looks back over her shoulder. She looks back over her shoulder with a smile, wearing a sheer black patterned kimono over a mauve colored under robe, tied with a green obi with a design of birds in flight. A classic beauty print by Utamaro with fine line work in the hair and a shimmering mica background.
