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 pillar print design of chrysanthemum blossoms, shown in all stages from bud to fully open. The petals of the pink and yellow flowers are wonderfully detailed and colored. An attractive composition with soft shading in the background. A great kacho-e subject by Hiroshige.
