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.

She wears a white scarf patterned with a violet leaf over her head, the edge caught in her mouth to keep it from blowing in the breeze. A lovely design enhanced by a shimmering mica background.
