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. A great opportunity to acquire a fine reprint of a classic ukiyo-e design.
Comments - A wonderful Utamaro pillar print of a young beauty in the wintertime about to board a pleasure boat, a young man waiting for her inside. She wears a lovely violet colored kimono bordered with delicate white narcissus blossoms, and tall wooden geta sandals. She holds a partially closed umbrella against the softly falling snow. A charming design with beautiful color.
