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.
The Sea Off Satta in Suruga Province - Fantastic view of a huge wave at Satta curling along the right edge of the scene and exploding into a spray of white foam, dwarfing the tiny boats in the distance. White-capped waves crash along the rocky shore in the foreground, contrasting with the calm surface of the water beyond. Pine trees frame a view of the peak of Mt. Fuji at left, with a flock of birds flying high across the sky. An outstanding, dramatic design with wonderful color and movement, considered by many the best from this series. A real Hiroshige masterpiece.
