A Fuji Arts special offer auction

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.

Autumn Moon of the Mirror Stand - Lovely design of a young woman having her hair styled by a maid. She kneels before a mirror stand, her kimono trailing onto the floor around her. Tall grasses frame the open shoji window, and a screen with a lion provides a backdrop. A beautiful Harunobu subject. The shape of the mirror on the makeup stand imitates the form of the full moon in this print from a Harunobu series parodying the famous "Eight Views of Omi" using scenes from everyday life.

Artist - Harunobu (1724 - 1770)

Image Size - 11 1/4" x 8 1/4" + margins as shown
