Shigenaga (circa 1697 - 1756) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Cherry Blossom Viewing

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 - Charming design from the early years of color woodblock prints of a beauty on an outing to view cherry blossoms. She lifts the edge of a cloth panel hung from a flowering cherry tree to provide privacy for the group, a rug spread on the ground below for a picnic. Her kimono features a patchwork of colorful fabrics, the tan area heightened with metallic particles. An attractive view of this favorite springtime activity.

Image Size - 12 1/2" x 5 7/8" + margins as shown
