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 - Beautiful image of a pair of young lovers strolling through the snow, sharing the handle of a snow-covered umbrella beneath a willow tree. The beauty looks down demurely, dressed in a beautifully embossed white kimono and hood. Her companion wears a black coat and hood that is also lightly embossed. A lovely design.
