■Suzuki Harunobu "Beauty admiring the Plum Blossoms at Night"

The print designed for this smartphone's wallpaper is "Beauty admiring the Plum Blossoms at Night" by Suzuki Harunobu. Harunobu was born in 1725 in Edo (Current Tokyo) and became a very popular ukiyo-e artist around 1765. He invented the registration marks for the wood block which made multicolor printing happen. Because of this invention, Harunobu is called "father of multicolor woodcut print".

The work of "Beauty admiring the Plum Blossoms at Night" is considered as one of Harunobu's masterpieces and only two original prints are recognized now. It is an absolutely beautiful and magnificent print which has every single essence of Harunobu's beauty. The white plum blossoms are emerging by the lady's hand light in the pitch-dark night. The kimono patterns, lady's facial or fingers expression and her tabi socks printed with special printing technique, every single detail in this work is delicate and sophisticated.

"Beauty admiring the Plum Blossoms at Night" is available at Adachi's ukiyo-e online store.
