One hundred aspects of the moon : Japanese woodblock prints by Yoshitoshi by Tamara Tjardes( Book )
4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Yoshitoshi's artistic career traces a period of social and political change in Japan, which opened its doors to trade with the West in 1853, the year that he published his first woodblock print. As tumult shook the foundations of old Japan, Yoshitoshi cleaved to tradition in his choice of subject matter, drawing upon literature, history, and mythology, the warrior class, and the Buddhist notion of "the floating world" to preserve and celebrate Japanese culture before modernism. In one hundred views and commentaries, the artist used the popular woodblock print form to depict everyday Japanese concerns and the collective apprehension about a future not yet clarified
A courtesan's day : hour by hour ( Book )
2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 408 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A courtesan's day: hour by hour is the second in Hotei Publishing's Famous Japanese Prints Series (FJPS). In this volume three series are examined: Kitagawa Utamaro's The Twelve Hours of the 'Green Houses' (Seiro junitoki, c. 1794), Tsukioka Yoshitoshi's The Twenty-four Hours at Shinbashi and Yanagibashi (Shinryu nijuyoji, 1880-81) and Toyohara Kunichika's Scenes of the Twenty-four Hours, A Pictorial Trope (Mitate chuya nijuyoji no uchi, 1890-91)." "Each demonstrates the use of the hours of the day as a convenient trope for Japanese print artists in their creation of sets that portray bijin ('beautiful women') engaged in diurnal activities. These bijin range from courtesans of the renown Yoshiwara pleasure quarter, to geisha from the less celebrated Shinbashi and Yanagibashi districts, and on to women from seemingly various walks of life. A contextual and visual analysis of these works by the authors provides the reader with an insight into the broader cultural and artistic milieu of the early and later nineteenth century."--BOOK JACKET
Yoshitoshi's strange tales by John Stevenson( Book )
4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Taiso Yoshitoshi (1839-1892) was the most popular woodblock artist of his day. Customers lined up on the day of publication for his prints of historical characters and beautiful women. His career, which introduced subtle psychological observation to the artistic and representational world of ukiyo-e, straddled the tumultuous late Edo and early Meiji periods. Yoshitoshi was fascinated by the supernatural, and some of his best work concerns ghosts, monsters, and charming animal transmutations. Yoshitoshi's Strange Tales presents two series that focus on his depictions of the weird and magical world of the transformed. The first series dates from the beginning and the second from the end of the artist's abbreviated career, encapsulating his artistic development. One Hundred Tales of Japan and China (Wakan hyaku monogatari) of 1865 is based on a game in which people told short scary ghost tales in a darkened room, extinguishing a candle as each tale ended. New Forms of Thirty-Six Strange Things (Shinken sanjurokkaisen) of 1889-92 illustrates stories from Japan's rich heritage of legends in more serene and objective ways. The book opens with a study of Japanese ghost prints and analysis of Yoshitoshi's changing treatments of the genre, and reproduces three rare paintings by the artist. This is Yoshitoshi at his most whimsical and imaginative."--BOOK JACKET
