Kuniyoshi (1797 - 1861) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Crab and Tortoise

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 - Handsome pillar print of a tortoise climbing a hill towards a couple of yellow blossoms, a crab in its path. The tortoise slowly makes its way up the steep hill, the dark shadows at lower left seeming to emphasize its arduous effort. A rarely seen Kuniyoshi nature design, nicely shaded.

Artist - Kuniyoshi (1797 - 1861)
