Takamizawa Beauties Collection
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.
Beauty Preparing for Bed - Charming image of a beauty preparing to retire for the evening, lighting a pipe from a lamp draped with a blue cloth. Her kimono is loosely wrapped about her, and she holds folded tissues in her other hand. The folding screen at right features an intricate geometric pattern in black and gray. An attractive design, nicely detailed.
