Hour of the Hare (6 am) by Utamaro (1750 - 1806)

Utamaro (1750 - 1806) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Hour of the Hare (6 am)
Series; Twelve Hours in the Yoshiwara

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.

Hour of the Hare (6 am) - Lovely old reprint of this fine Utamaro Yoshiwara image. A young beauty in a fine, formal kimono holding a man's kimono printed with the face of Daruma inside. The implication is that she's seeing a man off in the early hours of the morning. A beautiful reprint with soft color and fine detail. The background treated with a metallic fleck, exactly as Utamaro's original was done. A fantastic piece for display.

Artist - Utamaro (1750 - 1806)
Image Size - 15" x 9 3/4" + margins as shown
Condition - Excellent overall with no issues to report.
