Ginko Adachi


In the genre of Japanese Art, Ginko Adachi created prints during the Meiji period. His first artist name (Go) was Shosetsusai and he produced 50 actor prints in 1874 with this name. Ginko became famous for triptych war prints of The Satsuma Rebellion (Seinan Sensō) in 1877. He then changed his name to Adachi and published 'The Famous Places of Tokyo'. His other works include prints on the Sino-Japanese War, press coverage of events prints and female genre prints. 

Ginko was later arrested and imprisoned for a year in 1889 for his caricature of the Meiji Emperor after the controversial Meiji Constitution decree. He continued to work after his release, but disappeared from public life shortly after in 1908.
