Courtesan Trimming a Lamp

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.

Courtesan Trimming a Lamp - Fine reprint of a very early Kunisada design, around 1818, of a young beauty in a tie-dyed red under robe, extinguishing the light in her room at nighttime. The two teacups on a black lacquer tray suggest that a man is waiting in bed for her. A lovely, sensuous design with soft bokashi shading. A Kunisada masterwork, fantastic for display.

Artist - Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864)
Image Size - 15 3/8" x 10 3/8" + margins as shown
Condition - Excellent with no issues to report.
