Founded in 1925, Adachi also chose interesting and varied subjects for their prints and was the only publisher of many famous old ukiyo-e images. This print is sealed with the Adachi seal in ink.
Autumn Moon of the Mirror Stand - Lovely design of a young woman having her hair styled by a maid. She kneels before a mirror stand, her kimono trailing onto the floor around her. Tall grasses frame the open shoji window, and a screen with a lion provides a backdrop. A beautiful Harunobu subject. The shape of the mirror on the makeup stand imitates the form of the full moon in this print from a Harunobu series parodying the famous "Eight Views of Omi" using scenes from everyday life.
