Utagawa Kuniyoshi (1797 – 1861) was an “eccentric artist” due to his dynamic pictures of warriors and unique caricatures, and he brought new depth to the world of woodblock print at the end of the Edo period.
Because of his charm of big-brother type, Kuniyoshi attracted many pupils, and the Kuniyoshi family continued to challenge themselves with new subjects and portrayals in their works in the surge of turbulent time.
Among them, Tsukioka Yoshitoshi’s (1839 – 1892) popularity has risen again in recent years for his advancement of the fusion of Ukiyoe and Western painting.
With specially selected 150 items or so from Nagoya City Museum’s abundant Ukiyoe Collection, this exhibition focuses on the way Kuniyoshi add a new dimension through his brimming curiosity, open-minded ideas, and rich expressive abilities, and how it was passed down to his pupils and changed.
