Hour of the Dog (8pm)

Series; Twelve Hours in the Yoshiwara

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.

Hour of the Dog (8pm) - An incredible Utamaro design from his "Twelve Hours in the Yoshiwara" series. A young geisha practicing calligraphy on a long scroll shares a secret with her maid. A beautiful design with excellent soft color. A lovely, old print emulating Utamaro's original. The background flecked with gold ink as were all the prints in this Utamaro series. A nice effect that gives this print the appearance of an original - beautiful.

Artist - Utamaro (1750 - 1806)
