9789070216061: Heroes & ghosts: Japanese prints by Kuniyoshi, 1797-1861

Kuniyoshi (1797-1861) is considered one of the greatest Japanese print artists. He dominated the 19th century alongside the illustrious names of Hokusai, Hiroshige and Kunisada. A prolific and multi-talented artist, Kuniyoshi portrayed the historic heroes of Japan's warrior past. Kuniyoshi's sense of humour surfaces in his prints of comical or satirical subjects (giga-e). In his more traditional rendering of beauties and actors his strong and transparent style always shines through. By using over 300 examples from public and private collections, the author has managed to produce a comprehensive overview of the artist's abilities. This publication was produced on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the Society for Japanese Arts.
