Utagawa Kuniyoshi: Fantastic Visions The World of Kuniyoshi, Dramatist of Edo


Discontinued book, very sought after.

Heroes, monstrous creatures, vengeful ghosts, dandies, the grotesque, nonsense, parody…

The woodblock-printed and painted works of Kuniyoshi, the great ukiyo-e artist of the Edo period, are filled with humor and inventiveness.

This compilation of the works of Kuniyoshi contains some 200 plates, including classic examples of musha-e pictures of legendary warriors, kassen-no-zu battle scenes, giga-e anthropomorphic caricatures of animals, and scenes of famous places in old Edo and other regions depicting the lives of the common people
