Quail and Millet
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 - Handsome design of two quail sheltering under millet plants in late summer, the stalks heavy with yellow heads of grain. The leaves curve gracefully over the bodies of the birds, creating a lyrical composition. Nicely detailed and softly colored.
