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.
Comments - Lovely design of two beauties returning from the bath in a snow storm, carrying an umbrella, their heads down as they walk into the wind. The woman at right carries a blue and white cotton robe under her arm, a towel draped over her shoulder. Attractively colored and nicely detailed.
