Eisen (1790 - 1848) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
A Beauty in the Morning Mist
Adachi Publisher - This beautiful reprint is from the famous Tokyo publisher Adachi, one of the most respected publishers of the 20th century. Adachi woodblocks were printed to the highest standards of quality with excellent color and fine detail. The Adachi woodblock printers were known to be the best in the business. 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. This print is sealed with the Adachi seal in ink.
Comments - Wonderful portrait of a young beauty waking in the early morning after a long night of entertaining. This classic Eisen portrait shows the young girl under a heavy plaid quilt, looking a bit disheveled after a late evening. Her hair is pulled back into a smooth bun adorned with a few hairpins, including a metal one decorated with a tiny cuckoo flying past a crescent moon. Beautiful color and detail in this charming image.
