Yoshitoshi : One Hundred Aspects Of The Moon

Yoshitoshi : One Hundred Aspects Of The Moon

$245.00

 Yoshitoshi (1839 - 1892) was the last virtuoso of the Japanese woodblock print, and the One Hundred Aspects of the Moon, published between 1885 and 1892, were his crowning achievement. This series - mainly illustrating stories from history and legend, unified by the motif of the moon - is charged with paradox. In order to carry forward the tradition of ukiyo-e, Yoshitoshi drew stylistic inspiration from the very forces that were rendering it obsolete - namely, Western art and mass media like photography and lithography. As if they realised they were witnessing the end of an era, the artist's public responded enthusiastically to his innovative series - many of the individual prints were sold out on the morning of their publication
