Morning Glories and Cricket Fan Print

Series; A Compendium of Flowers of the Four Seasons

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.

Morning Glories and Cricket Fan Print - Beautiful night scene from a very unusual series by Hiroshige depicting famous restaurants. Two elegant geisha are boarding a boat leaving from the popular Aoyagi Restaurant. A servant hurries after them carrying a large tray of food for the party they will be attending. A lovely riverside scene with wonderful detail in the architecture and fine line work in the gracefully moving willow branches. A rare subject to find in reprint.
