ghost of ukiyo-e | yoshitoshi



With a career that bridged the final years of the Edo period and the first years of Japans modernization following the Meiji Restoration,

Tsukioka Yoshitoshi (1839-92), A disciple of Kuniyoshi Utagawa  is widely recognized as the last great master of the ukiyo-e genre of woodblock printing and painting. Concerned with the loss of many aspects of traditional Japanese culture, he became an avid proponent of working in the old manner and was one of the greatest innovators of woodblock printing before it was eclipsed by mass reproduction methods like photography and lithography. This beautifully illustrated book features numerous of Yoshitoshis ukiyo-e prints themed around ghosts, spirits, and all things supernatural.

Among his vast catalogue of works, Wakan Hyakumonogatari featuring 26 images Yoshitoshi created during his early days as a print artist, and Shinkei Sanjuroku Kaisen, containing 36 prints made in his later years, are two works that are especially well known as masterful collections of ghost pictures that introduce a wealth of mysterious creatures. In a total of about 100 items from his earliest to his latest years, including all images from both Wakan Hyakumonogatari and Shinkei Sanjuroku Kaisen, this book illustrates the fascinating world of specters in the prints of Yoshitoshi Tsukioka.
