Morning Glories and Cricket Fan Print by Hiroshige (1797 - 1858)

Hiroshige (1797 - 1858) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Morning Glories and Cricket Fan Print

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.

Woodblock reprints - In the 20th century, artists and publishers collaborated to recreate famous woodblock prints for interested Japanese collectors and Westerners looking for rare designs. New blocks were made, and the prints were painstakingly printed by artisan printers in the same method as the 19th century originals - one block for each color. Woodblock reprints were an opportunity to collect and enjoy a famous design at a small fraction of the price of an original. They still are today.

Comments - Lovely Hiroshige fan design featuring colorful morning glories in rich tones of blue, violet, and red. A cricket climbs a stalk of bamboo supporting the vines at left. A wonderful Hiroshige nature subject and an attractive choice for display.

Artist - Hiroshige (1797 - 1858)
Image Size - Page size 9 3/8" x 12 1/4"
Condition - This print with excellent color and detail as shown. Please see photos for details. Nice overall.
