Publisher - Adachi from a rare series of Edo masterwork designs. Adachi publisher seal in margin or on reverse.
Adachi was one of the most respected publishers of the 20th century. Their woodblocks were printed to the highest standards with excellent color and fine detail. 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.
Comments - Charming pillar print design of a young woman after a hot bath scented with iris or sweet-flags, traditionally taken on the day of Tango, the Fifth of May Festival. Her cotton yukata is tied loosely about her, and a cat playfully bites the hem of her robe. A lovely design, beautifully suited to the pillar print format.
