Enjoying the Cool Air at Nakasu

Series; A Contest of Fashionable Beauties of the Pleasure Quarters

A Special 1938 Takamizawa Group - Founded in 1911, the Takamizawa Publisher of Tokyo has published some of the finest reprints of classic ukiyo-e designs. Drawing on the traditions and methods of the Edo era, the company produced reprints with the utmost care and great attention to detail, masterfully reproducing color, line work and even wood grain detail. Published in 1938, this handsome reprint group features designs by master artists such as Utamaro, Kiyonaga, Eishi, Hokusai, Hiroshige, Sharaku, and others. Each features a Takamizawa publisher seal on the  reverse. A great opportunity to acquire a high quality reprint of a famous Edo era subject.

Enjoying the Cool Air at Nakasu - Terrific design of beauties enjoying the cool evening air while strolling through the Nakasu entertainment district in Edo. The courtesan in the center wears a sheer black kimono tied with an intricately patterned obi. Her younger companion wears a flowing robe in a pink and white plaid, lifting the hem as she walks. The blue curtains of a shop hang overhead, along with a paper lantern. A lovely scene with attractive color and fine line work.
