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 - Terrific Hokusai design of two young beauties fascinated by a telescope, an intriguing Western import. One woman peers through the end of the instrument as her companion watches her closely. A charming design with attractive color, beautifully detailed with a shimmering white mica background.
