Curtain of Shells Fan Print

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 fan print of a young woman passing through a beaded curtain made of shells strung together. This design has a fresh youthfulness and vitality that make it a standout from some of the other beauty images done in this time period. This is a lovely print and a great subject for display. Rarely seen in reprint.

Artist - Kuniyoshi (1797 - 1861)

Image Size - Page size 9" x 11 3/4"
