Utamaro (1750 - 1806) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Madoka of the Tamaya

Adachi Limited Edition Beauties - In 1967, the venerable Adachi Publisher of Tokyo released a limited edition series of 25 classic ukiyo-e beauty subjects. These beautiful reprints feature masterworks by Utamaro, Kiyonaga, Eisho, and others, including some subjects seldom seen in reprint. Printed with fine line work and attractive color, some designs feature deluxe treatments such as embossing or shimmering mica. Limited to 500 sets, each print is numbered on the reverse with a special Adachi publisher's seal. A wonderful opportunity to collect a lovely bijin reprint from a great limited edition release.

Comments - Attractive portrait of a courtesan holding a gray and white dotted robe with a paulownia crest on it. She leans forward, examining it closely. Her hair is ornately arranged in two large loops, adorned with many hairpins, and she wears several layers of colorful kimono. Her outer robe has been pushed down to the waist, revealing a purple kimono patterned with maple leaves and tied with a yellow obi. A lovely design with fine detail in the hair line and subtle white mica on the kimono collar.

Artist - Utamaro (1750 - 1806)
Image Size - 15" x 9 3/4" + margins as shown
