Adachi Publisher - This beautiful reprint is from the famous Tokyo publisher Adachi, one of the most respected publishers of the 20th century. Adachi woodblocks were printed to the highest standards of quality with excellent color and fine detail. The Adachi woodblock printers were known to be the best in the business. 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.
Comments - Attractive scene of a beauty reading a letter, looking down carefully as the paper trails over her hand. Beside her, a maid pauses with her broom in hand, holding her hand to her chin. Sliding shoji panels open onto another room with a bonsai tree in a large container. A charming design with a nicely detailed setting, seldom seen in reprint.
