Komatsuken (active circa 1765) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Miscanthus and Wild Geese

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 - Lovely nature scene of geese descending for the evening under a moonlit sky. The poem in the print is a Japanese "wakka" and reads, roughly translated:

To people visited by autumn wind
the season’s tidings are brought by wild geese.

A fantastic autumn subject w23ith delicate line work in the graceful grasses and pink flowering bush clover.
