Adachi Limited Edition Beauties - In 1967, the venerable Adachi Publisher of Tokyo released a limited edition series of 25 classic ukiyo-e beauty subjects. These beautiful reprints feature masterworks by Utamaro, Kiyonaga, Eisho, and others, including some subjects seldom seen in reprint. Printed with fine line work and attractive color, some designs feature deluxe treatments such as embossing or shimmering mica. Limited to 500 sets, each print is numbered on the reverse with a special Adachi publisher's seal. A wonderful opportunity to collect a lovely bijin reprint from a great limited edition release.
Appearing Again: Naniwaya Okita - Wonderful Utamaro portrait of the famous beauty Okita of the Naniwaya Teahouse serving tea. She carefully carries a porcelain cup on a red lacquer tray, using both hands, looking down with a slight smile. A classic Edo era beauty subject.
