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 late summer scene of a dragonfly hovering in mid-air above a bellflower covered with softly colored blossoms. The dragonfly's wings are delicately embossed, a beautiful detail. A wonderful, quiet example of Hokusai's fine kacho-e (birds and flowers prints).
