Young Lovers under an Umbrella by Utamaro (1750 - 1806)

Utamaro (1750 - 1806) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Young Lovers under an Umbrella

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 - Charming Utamaro design of a young couple sharing an umbrella under a gentle rain. The beauty smiles slightly, looking down somewhat shyly as they hold the umbrella handle together. The young man has a white cloth wrapped around his head, the end held between his teeth. A lovely subject with fine detail and soft color. Would make an attractive display.

Artist - Utamaro (1750 - 1806)
Image Size - 15" x 9 7/8" + margins as shown
Condition - With excellent color and detail. Please see photos for details.
