Adachi Publisher - This beautiful reprint is from the famous Tokyo publisher Adachi, one of the most respected publishers of the 20th century.

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 - Beautiful portrait of the elegant courtesan Miyahito of the Ogiya House. She wears a solid black outer robe, which contrasts beautifully with her soft rose kimono and the green obi with an intricate geometric pattern. Her hair is arranged high atop her head, adorned with a single comb and several hairpins. A classic Utamaro beauty print with a shimmering white mica background.
