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. 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.
Asakusa River and Distant View of Kinryuzan Temple - Handsome pillar print design of a ferry crossing the Asakusa River. Rain slants down across the water and the boatman poles his craft along, wearing a straw raincoat. Boats are moored along the opposite shore, and the buildings of Kinryuzan Temple rise above the treetops in the distance. Nicely detailed with soft bokashi shading.
