Rival masters of the 19th Century woodblock print
  • ABOUT THE ARTISTS: Utagawa Kuniyoshi and Utagawa Kunisada of the Edo era were better known than HOKUSAI. Kuniyoshi (1797-1861) is best known for his prints of battles and Samurai soldiers. Hardly an inch of paper is empty. It's all about ACTION & HEROISM. Kunisada Utagawa (1786-1864) by contrast, was known for refined portraits of kabuki actors and luxurious geishas.It's all about THEATER & SENSUALITY.
  • ABOUT THE BOOK: Two artists prints examined in detail. Beautiful Reproductions.
  • PROMO: Accompanies exhibition at MFA Boston Showdown! Kuniyoshi vs. Kunisada, August 11, 2017 – December 10, 2017

Kuniyoshi X Kunisada

Kuniyoshi X Kunisada

Rival ukiyo-e masters Utagawa Kuniyoshi (1797–1861) and Utagawa Kunisada (1786–1865) were the two most admired designers of figure prints in 19th-century Japan.

Famous for the realism of his portraits of Kabuki actors, the sensuality of his beautiful women and the luxurious settings he imagined for historical scenes, Kunisada was the popular favorite during his lifetime. Kuniyoshi is loved by connoisseurs and collectors today for his dynamic action scenes of warriors and monsters (which foreshadowed present-day manga and anime), his comic prints and even a few especially daring works that included forbidden political satire in disguise. With glorious full-color illustrations, this beautifully produced volume presents Kuniyoshi and Kunisada’s artistic rivalry through a selection of outstanding works from the unparalleled Japanese art collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
