Presents reproductions of nearly 200 prints, book illustrations and drawings spanning the career of celebrated Meiji artist Tsukioka Yoshitoshi, whose expressive depictions of warriors, courtesans, kabuki actors, contemporary events and figures from Japanese history and folk legend preserved the traditions of the ukiyo-e style while also reflecting the social and political turmoil of late 19th-century Japan. Substantial commentaries on many of the featured works supplement an introductory overview of Yoshitoshi's life and oeuvre that includes discussions of his portrayals of women, his interest in historical subjects, and the psychological and cultural forces underlying his images of violence.
