: I came across some large Japanese prints that were in mats which had a label of: The Adachi Inst. of Woodcut Prints. Does anyone know of this institute and whether these prints are copies or originals. One artist was Hishikawa Moronobu and another is called "Beauty by the Boat" and the artist is Harunobu. Thanks.

Adachi Institute of Woodblock Prints IS a publisher (began production in 1926) of reproduction of Japanese woodblock prints. their reproductions (or reprints) are indeed genuine and authentic woodblock printings from carved woodblocks by skilled 20th century artisans. this print publisher is reknowned for the high-quality fine reproductions of primarily "golden age" ukiyo-e benchmark images by sharaku, utamaro, hokusai, and hiroshige. but also produced "shin hanga" re-prints beginning in 1930 (primarily kawase hasui images). prints bearing Adachi's publisher seal(s) in MINT condition of exceptional quality impression and registration are just now beginning to be appreciated.
