A lovely and very rare series of wood cut pictures hand printed on washi paper in Kyoto, 1903.
The work displays a delightful variety of flowers, grasses, insects, reptiles and amphibians using a sensitive palette of natural colours.
These are early impression prints and demonstrate Takizawa’s outstanding technical and artistic skill with a superb representation of the detail and beauty of the natural world.
This is an antique, original hand-crafted woodblock print from the 1903 edition of “Sen Ryo Do” published by Unsodo, Kyoto
The same print is also held in the collections of the British Museum and Amherst College, Massachusetts
