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 pillar print image of three puppies playing at the foot of a rose bush covered with pink and white blossoms in full bloom. Nicely detailed with embossing on the white fur of one of the puppy's legs and soft shading in the background. A sweet design we've never seen in reprint before.
