Japanese Prints 木版画
Utagawa Kuniyoshi [ 歌川 国芳, January 1, 1797 – April 14, 1861] was one of the last great masters of the Japanese ukiyo-e style of woodblock prints and painting. He was a member of the Utagawa school.
The range of Kuniyoshi's subjects included many genres: landscapes, beautiful women, Kabuki actors, cats, and mythical animals. He is known for depictions of the battles of legendary samurai heroes. His artwork incorporated aspects of Western representation in landscape painting and caricature.
Kawanabe Kyōsai [ 河鍋 暁斎, May 18, 1831 – April 26, 1889] was a Japanese artist, in the words of a critic, "an individualist and an independent, perhaps the last virtuoso in traditional Japanese painting".
Tsukioka Yoshitoshi [芳年, 1839-1892] is generally considered the last great master of the Japanese woodblock print (ukiyo-e) - and by some, one of the great innovative and creative geniuses of that artistic field.
