Autumn Moon at Emonzaka in the New Yoshiwara

Series; Famous Views of the Eastern Capital

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.

Autumn Moon at Emonzaka in the New Yoshiwara - Beautiful Hiroshige landscape of a flock of birds silhouetted against a full moon as the evening sky begins to darken. Porters carry a palanquin up Emon slope below, with the rooftops of the New Yoshiwara district spreading out into the distance. A lovely composition enhanced by soft bokashi shading. A fine Takamizawa reprint with publisher's seal on reverse.

Woodblock reprints - In the 20th century, artists and publishers collaborated to recreate famous woodblock prints for interested Japanese collectors and Westerners looking for rare designs. New blocks were made, and the prints were painstakingly printed by artisan printers in the same method as the 19th century originals - one block for each color. Woodblock reprints were an opportunity to collect and enjoy a famous design at a small fraction of the price of an original. They still are today.
