- Tombo (Dragonflies)

Kin-u Takeshita


The serene woodblock print "Dragonflies" is by Kin-u Takeshita (1910-1960). This beautiful print captures a peaceful moment of delicate dragonflies gracefully flying among the rice plants at sunset. The warm hues of the sky evoke a sense of nostalgia and warmth, making it the perfect addition to any romantic setting. The artist's seal "Kin-u" and the Uchida publisher's seal are in the upper right corner of the image. Beautifully embossed and highly detailed with skillful shading.

Kin-u Takeshita was a Kyoto-based designer and painter. His excellent, elegant woodblock prints were published by Uchida Publisher from before the war through the postwar period.
