Wakatsuru of the Wakamatsuya by Utamaro (1750 - 1806)

Utamaro (1750 - 1806) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Wakatsuru of the Wakamatsuya

Adachi Limited Edition Beauties - In 1967, the venerable Adachi Publisher of Tokyo released a limited edition series of 25 classic ukiyo-e beauty subjects. These beautiful reprints feature masterworks by Utamaro, Kiyonaga, Eisho, and others, including some subjects seldom seen in reprint. Printed with fine line work and attractive color, some designs feature deluxe treatments such as embossing or shimmering mica. Limited to 500 sets, each print is numbered on the reverse with a special Adachi publisher's seal. A wonderful opportunity to collect a lovely bijin reprint from a great limited edition release.

Comments - Fantastic design by Utamaro showing the famous beauty Wakatsuru rolling up a scroll or long letter, a calligraphy brush caught between her teeth. She looks down with concentration, focusing on her task, a white cloth tying back her elegant hairstyle. The scroll features beautiful allover cloth embossing, a lovely detail. A great choice to collect or display.

Artist - Utamaro (1750 - 1806)
Image Size - 15" x 9 7/8" + margins as shown
Condition - This print with excellent color and detail as shown. Please see photos for details. Good overall.
