Courtesan Somenosuke of the Matsubaya  by Utamaro (1750 - 1806)

Utamaro (1750 - 1806) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Courtesan Somenosuke of the Matsubaya
Series; Supreme Beauties of the Present Day

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

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 Somenosuke of the Matsubaya - The youngest beauty portrayed in this wonderful Utamaro series, Somenosuke is shown as an attractive and innocent girl, barely into the first stage of her courtesan training. She looks over her shoulder quietly as she uses a hairpin to open a letter. Utamaro’s wonderful portrait portrays a beauty both youthful and charming. Fantastic color in our fine old reprint with excellent detail. Would make a wonderful display.

Artist - Utamaro (1750 - 1806)
Image Size - 15 1/4" x 10 3/8" + margins as shown
Condition - This print with excellent color and detail as shown. Please see photos for details. Nice overall.
