White Herons in Snow by Harunobu (1724 - 1770)

Harunobu (1724 - 1770) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
White Herons in Snow

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 - Beautiful Harunobu print of two herons on a winter day. One perches atop an upright oar along the water's edge, while the other takes from the willow tree at right. Snow is mounded up on the roof of the docked boat, with clumps of snow along the shore. The birds and the mounds of snow are embossed along the edges from the reverse, which gives them a gently rounded appearance, a special printing technique known as kimekomi or kimedashi. Includes additional embossing in the ripples on the water. A lovely design.
