Beauties Strolling by Kiyonaga (1752 - 1815)

Kiyonaga (1752 - 1815) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Beauties Strolling

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 - Beautiful design of a wealthy young woman strolling with two attendants and a young boy. She wears a plum kimono patterned with white blossoms, with long flowing sleeves, and a cap to protect her hairstyle. A young boy follows them, his shaven head indicating his status as a merchant's apprentice or kozo. A lovely, elegant image.

Image Size - 15 1/2" x 10 1/2" + margins as shown
