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 - Lovely Harunobu design of the young beauty Osen in a driving rain near a torii gate at the entrance to Kasamori Shrine. Osen worked as a waitress at the Kagiya tea stand at the shrine. Wind sweeps across the scene, blowing her robes and her lantern to the side. Fine embossed detail on the lantern and her under robe, an attractive touch.
