About this Item: 1877. Kein Einband. Condition: Gut. Ohne Schutzumschlag. kumagai and atsumori, signiert toyohara kunichika hitsu, stempel seal toshidama, dated 1877, publisher matsushita heibei 3 oban tate-e good sheets pasted together with fold at seams thin paper backing, soiled left sheet: metallic transfer stains on the upper right, gesamtgröße 72 mal 35 cm, dated 1877 Japanese woodblock print artist, about thirteen he became student of Utagawa Kunisada. His deep appreciation and knowledge of kabuki drama led to his production primarily of ukiyo-e actor-prints. Kunichika also portrayed women deemed beautiful (bijinga). He worked successfully in the Edo period. The artist who became known as Toyohara Kunichika was born Ōshima Yasohachi, Kyōbashi district.It is believed that around age twelve Yasohachi began to study with Toyohara Chikanobu. His teacher gave him the name "Kazunobu". It may have been on the recommendation of Chikanobu that the boy was accepted the following year as an apprentice in the studio of Utagawa Kunisada. "Kunichika", a composite of the names of this two teachers, Kunisada and Chikanobu.The Meiji period brought competition from the new technologies of photography and photoengraving, effectively destroying the careers of most.In guides rating ukiyo-e artists his name appeared in the top ten in 1865, 1867, and 1885, when he was in eighth, fifth, and fourth place, respectively.In 1867, one year before the collapse of the Tokugawa Shogunate, he received an official commission by the government to contribute ten pictures to the 1867 World Exhibition in Paris.He also had a print at the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago.Although Kunichika's Meiji-era works remained rooted in the traditions of his teachers. In 1869 he did a series jointly with Yoshitoshi, In addition, Kunichika experimented with "Western" vanishing point perspective.He often portrayed beautiful women (bijinga), but his finest works are considered to have been bust, half- and three-quarter length, and close-up or "large-head" portraits of actors, and triptychs that presented "wide-screen" views of plays and popular stories. In July 1874, the magazine Shinbun hentai said that: "Color woodcuts are one of the specialties of Tokyo, and that Kyôsai, Yoshitoshi, Yoshiiku, Kunichika, and Ginkô are the experts in this area." In September 1874 The same journal held that: "The masters of Ukiyoe: Yoshiiku, Kunichika and Yoshitoshi. They are the most popular Ukiyo-e artists." In 1890, the bookTôkyô meishô doku annai (Famous Views of Tokyo), under the heading of woodblock artist, gave as examples Kunichika, Kunisada, Yoshiiku, and Yoshitoshi. In November 1890 a reporter for the newspaper Yomiuri Shimbun wrote about the specializations of artists of the Utagawa school: "Yoshitoshi was the specialist for warrior prints, Kunichika the woodblock artist known for portraits of actors, and Chikanobu for court ladies."Contemporary observers noted Kunichika's skillful use of color in his actor prints, but he was also criticized for his choices. Unlike most artists of the period, he made use of strong reds and dark purples, often as background colors, rather than the softer colors that had previously been used. These new colors were made of aniline dyes imported in the Meiji period from Germany. (For the Japanese the color red meant progress and enlightenment in the new era of Western-style progress.like most artists of his era and genre, Kunichika created many series of prints, including: Yoshiwara beauties compared with thirty-six poems;Thirty-two fashionable physiognomies; Sixteen Musashi parodying modern customs; Thirty-six good and evil beauties; Thirty-six modern restaurants;Mirror of the flowering of manners and customs; Fifty-four modern feelings matched with chapters of The Tale of Genji; Scenes of the twenty-four hours parodied; Actors in theatrical hits as great heroes in robber plays; Eight views of bandits parodied. Kunichika had one female student, Toyohara Chikayoshi. He is known to have done so. Signatur des Illustrators. Seller Inventory # ABE-10074279596

About this Item: Couverture rigide. Condition: Très bon. 1ère édition. L'album est initié classiquement par un programme imprimé de théâtre Kabuki, daté Meiji 6 (1873) suivi par seize triptyques, un diptyque et six portraits formant série, soit cinquante-six estampes nishiki-e (de brocart) en tirage de luxe avec gaufrages (karazuri) et noirs laqués (urushi-e). Format o-ban tate-e, sous couvertures cartonnées, contrecollées de deux estampes en suminagashi (papier marbré japonais). Hommage aux grands maîtres du Kabuki, ces estampes montrent des acteurs célèbres de premiers rôles dans leur somptueux costume de scène (poses arrêtées). On remarque aussi les changements survenus dans la société Meiji (1868 - 1912), sensibles jusque dans le monde traditionnel et relativement fermé du kabuki : acteurs à coiffure courte, vêtus à l'occidentale. Notons égalementi le magnifique triptyque de femmes à moitié nues et tatouées, parodie (mitate) du célèbre Suikoden - roman chinois des Ming - dont il porte le titre Hana Yujo Suikoden (Yujo : filles de joie).- Cet album réunit exclusivement des oeuvres de Toyohara Kunichika (1835-1900), élève de Toyohara Chikanobu et d'Utagawa Kunisada. Sa passion et sa grande connaissance du Kabuki font de Kunichika l'un des maîtres incontestés de ce type d'estampes. Recherché par ses contemporains comme par les collectionneurs actuels, ultime grand maître de l'école Utagawa, il représente la dernière lignée de la grande tradition de l'ukiyo-e après l'ouverture du Japon à l'occident. La cohérence et l'unité des sujets et des dates d'édition ainsi que la qualité d'impression (graveurs : Katada Horicho, Hori Uta, Hori Ei ; éditeurs :Yamamotoya, Kagaya, Kyu, Kinjudo, Kineido, Koeido) et le remarquable état de conservation donnent à cet ensemble un caractère tout à fait exceptionnel. Signé par l'auteur. Livre d'occasion. Seller Inventory # 35609
