The City of Babylon in Asia by Kuninaga (died 1829)

Kuninaga (died 1829) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
The City of Babylon in Asia
Series; Newly Printed Dutch Perspective Pictures

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.

The City of Babylon in Asia - Unusual depiction of the city of Babylon in Asia, a fanciful illustration showing a procession making its way across a bridge as ships sail below. Kuninaga demonstrates his interest in Western perspective with carefully drawn architectural details. Only the second time we've seen this fascinating subject in reprint.

Artist - Kuninaga (died 1829)
Image Size - 8 7/8" x 13 3/4" + margins as shown
Condition - Excellent overall with no issues to report.
