Subject:Help with Artist, Watercolor?
Posted By: Tom Mon, Nov 19, 2018 IP: 2601:98a:4102:5df0:e

I was hoping someone could help me with the calligraphy. Does anyone know the artist or what this says?

This appear to be a modern reproduction of a print from Kitagawa Utamaro, probably reproduced by Adachi corp in the 1950's
