The Entangled Kite String

Series; Customs of the East

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.

The Entangled Kite String - Attractive Kiyonaga design depicting a young woman, sometimes described as the "townsman's wife," walking on a windy day, accompanied by a young maid carrying an umbrella. The maid's foot has become entangled with the little boy's kite string, and he runs after her, tugging at the string. A charming design from Kiyonaga's "Customs of the East" series, which focuses on scenes of women and children in daily life.
