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 - Terrific Hokusai print depicting a woman weaving at a large loom outdoors under a pine tree. Two women assist her, carefully tending the threads. Incredibly fine detail in the warp and weft threads, giving a very realistic portrait of the setup of the loom. A handsome subject and a nice choice for anyone interested traditional handicrafts or textile production.
