Women by an Iris Pond
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 - A beautiful reprint of this Kiyonaga masterwork depicting two young beauties of leisure enjoying a traditional garden and iris pond in summertime. The women are elegantly attired in summer kimono, one kneeling down to pluck an iris at the water's edge. Delicately embossed detail in the water and on the women's garments. An attractive choice for display.
