Yoshitoshi – The undisputed master of Meiji (1868-1912) period art. Yoshitoshi’s woodcuts are now ranked beside those of Hiroshige, Hokusai and his former master, Kuniyoshi. Yoshitoshi became a star pupil of Kuniyoshi at the young age of eleven and, in 1853, designed his first published woodcut print at age fourteen. Until 1860, Yoshitoshi’s art was influenced by the dominant Utagawa style, but after that date he broke out into a striking form of artistic expression that was all his own. Daring color combinations combined with dramatic and expressive postures began to lead the way, quickly influencing an entire era of Japanese art.
