Fortune-telling Paper by Hiroshige (1797 - 1858)

Hiroshige (1797 - 1858) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Fortune-telling Paper

Publisher - Adachi from a rare series of Edo masterwork designs. Adachi publisher seal in margin.

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 - Charming fan print of a young courtesan from the Shinagawa or Shinjuku, the curious beauty eagerly opening a fortune from a fortuneteller. The rich colors in the print contrast beautifully with the woman’s fair complexion, the area around her eyes softly shaded with pink. An attractive design.

Artist - Hiroshige (1797 - 1858)
Image Size - Page size 9 1/2" x 13 1/4"
Condition - This print with excellent color and detail as shown. A few spots. Please see photos for details.
