The Shores of a Dream reveals the range of Kuniyoshi's early work, from broadly painted canvases that echo American folk painting to pen-and-ink works reminiscent of Japanese sumi ink drawing or touched with delicate washes of color. Comparative examples from traditional Japanese art and Kuniyoshi's contemporaries, including Charles Demuth, Georgia O'Keefe, and Marsden Hartley, suggest how he fused both traditional and modernist artistic principles into a style uniquely his own.
