Moronobu (1618 - 1694) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
A Young Man Dallying with a Courtesan

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.

Comments - Interesting hand-colored reprint of an early black and white design by Moronobu showing young lovers in an elegant interior. The couple looks at each other lovingly, the beauty smiling as she pats her hair. A kimono patterned with maple leaves and clouds rests on the floor next to a shamisen. An attractive subject from the early years of woodblock prints.
