Shunsho (1726 - 1792) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Ultimate Clearance - $16.50

Earliest Takamizawa Reprints - This handsome reprint is by the venerable Takamizawa publisher and is from the earliest period of their work as a publishing house. 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.

This reprint dates from the 1920s during the Taisho era, and came with a group in an early Takamizawa folder (not included). A couple have a Takamizawa seal on the reverse, but most do not. A nice opportunity to acquire a fine, early Takamizawa reprint of a classic ukiyo-e design.

Comments - Terrific kabuki portrait of Ichikawa Danjuro V as the ghost of the monk Seigen in the dance sequence "Sono Utsushi-e Matsu ni Kaede" (A Shadow Picture of Pine and Maple) at the Morita Theater in 1772. The dance is the final act in the play "Keisei Momiji no Uchikake (Courtesan in a Maple Leaf Pattern Over-kimono). Dressed as a courtesan, he looks to the side with a grim frown, his outer robe detailed with a beautiful embossed geometric pattern and decorated with maple leaves and flowing water. The first time we've seen this early kabuki subject in reprint.
