Amaranth and Hare

This Print from the Venerable Adachi Publisher - This beautiful reprint is from the famous Tokyo publisher Adachi, one of the most respected publishers of the 20th century. Adachi prints 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. The Adachi group also chose interesting and varied subjects for their prints and was the only publisher of many famous old ukiyo-e images. These Adachi prints are sealed with a decorative, raised seal reading "Adachi" in roman characters indicating the print meets Adachi’s high quality standards.

Comments - Intriguing image of a white rabbit prowling beneath an amaranth plant with colorful orange and dark red foliage. The animal looks somewhat menacing, with red eyes and sharp claws, and seems more like a cat with its long legs. The fur is beautifully rendered entirely in embossing, a wonderful touch.
