Fine printing from the respected Tokyo publisher Oedo Mokuhansha - These classic designs were produced by the well known Tokyo publisher Oedo Mokuhansha amidst a resurgence of interest in ukiyo-e. Like many of these traditional businesses, the woodblock print craft was passed down through generations, and the Oedo Mokuhansha company was formed by descendents of an Edo era publisher. These are nice prints of the highest quality standards and an excellent choice if you are looking for fine old woodblock reprints.
Comments - Lovely design of two white herons wading in a pond bordered with purple irises and tall grasses waving gracefully in the breeze. A beautiful color palette with the water and sky softly shaded in rich tones of blue and aqua. A very handsome kacho-e (birds and flowers print) subject that would make a fantastic display. Printed on a tan paper to simulate an aged appearance.
