Toyokuni I (1769 - 1825) Japanese Woodblock Reprint

This Print from the Venerable Adachi Publisher - This beautiful reprint is from the famous Tokyo publisher Adachi, one of the most respected publishers of the 20th century. Adachi prints were printed to the highest standards of quality with excellent color and fine detail. The Adachi woodblock printers were known to be the best in the business. The Adachi group also chose interesting and varied subjects for their prints and was the only publisher of many famous old ukiyo-e images. These Adachi prints are sealed with a decorative, raised seal reading "Adachi" in roman characters indicating the print meets Adachi’s high quality standards.

Comments - Fantastic image of a carp leaping out of the water, its tail thrashing. The rushing river sweeps around the fish in sinuous curves, with water plants tangled around its body. Toyokuni I did very few nature scenes, and this is one of his best. A wonderful image with a terrific sense of motion and energy. A rare subject to find in reprint, beautifully detailed.

Image Size - 15" x 10 1/4" + margins as shown
