by Buncho (active 1765 - 1792)
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 - Lovely Buncho design of a courtesan standing on the verandah in the Hashiba district in Edo. She runs a comb through her hair as she looks out at water below, rain slanting across the evening sky. A boat ferries a passenger across the river, and stacks of wood at a lumberyard can be seen on the opposite shore. Lovely embossed lines indicating the flowing current of the river. A charming image with soft color and fine line work.
