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 - Attractive fan print of a young beauty hurrying through the rain. She carries her lantern close to her body beneath the umbrella, taking care that the flame doesn't go out. A lovely portrait with a fresh, youthful vitality. Would make a charming framed display.
