Masterworks by Tsukioka Yoshitoshi
Egenolf Gallery Fine Japanese Prints
Tsukioka Yoshitoshi (1839-1892) was the last of the great 19th century ukiyo-e artists, known for his early works of explicit gore as well as for his mature works of transcendence and pathos. A consummate draftsman, he developed a unique style of representation and narrative expression after first closely adhering to the manner of his teacher, Utagawa Kuniyoshi. For Asia Week NY 2022 we are pleased to offer a number of his most famous designs, as well as the first print that he published at the tender age of fourteen.
