The Southeast by Kiyonaga (1752 - 1815)

The Southeast
Series; Contest of Contemporary Beauties of the Pleasure Quarters

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.

The Southeast - Attractive scene of a beauty after a bath sitting next to a makeup mirror, her green kimono loosely wrapped about her. She reaches over her shoulder for a letter delivered to her by an attendant, who leans forward to hand her the message. At lower left, a shallow wooden tub holds water, with tissues, a pipe, and other objects strewn around the floor nearby. The woman standing behind her reads a book, following the text with her finger. A handsome subject with fine detail in the hair and kimono fabrics, rarely seen in reprint.

Image Size - 15 3/8" x 10 1/8" + margins as shown
