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 - Lovely design of a long-tailed bird perched on a branch of a blossoming plum tree. The brand is covered with white flowers and buds, and the sky is delicately shaded in rose. A beautiful example of Hiroshige's kacho-e, birds and flowers prints. A fine choice for display.
Artist - Hiroshige (1797 - 1858)
