Toyoharu (1735 - 1814) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Temple Gate

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 - Handsome view of the imposing entrance gate to a temple or shrine, with huge guardian figures flanking the center walkway. The grounds are crowded with visitors, and shops and tea stands line the plaza. A pagoda rises above the treetops at right. A fascinating perspective picture with wonderful detail. The first time we've seen this subject in reprint.
