58 Musha by Horiyoshi III

The Faithful Samurai - 47 Ronin Prints by Kuniyoshi
aaaa
Size: 9.5” x 12” - Pages: 192 - Published: 2006 - Price: $100 - Binding:  Softcover


This is a copy of Kyosai's 100 Apparitions, an amazing collection of prints from one of the most macabre Ukiyo-e printers. This book is now OUT OF PRINT. Kyosai was a student of Kuniyoshi and these two stand out among the painters from the floating world for their renditions of things strange, weird and frightening. Kyosai was an avid Sake drinker and an amazing storyteller, he enjoyed frightening his audiences and could always touch a nerve with his vivid imagination. He has been said to spare no canvas in his paintings, they are busy and multifaceted, the center object rarely being what captures the eye after the initial reaction of shock wears off. Hiding in the background are oni (japanese mythological demons), ghosts, skeletons and blood hungry ghouls. (plus several things I can't identify). His pieces are brilliant for larger tattoo pieces and has a hundred little images that would make great tattoos as well. This will be one of those books you don't want to leave around the shop but pull out for your favorite customers, pieces you can truly get excited about. The book would also make a great addition to any ukiyo-e collection.  Text is Japanese.

This is a collection of paintings by newly rediscovered byobu painter Hirose Kinzo (called Ekin by his peers). He was a talented youth in Tokyo who was forced to flee under some say unfounded, charges of counterfeiting and ended up in a sake cellar in Akaoka. He painted a series of grim and haunting byobu-e (screen paintings) 23 of which still remain in the small town and are brought out each year in a somewhat macabre festival in his honor...they are displayed along the road in show windows to be viewed at night by candlelight. Ekin uses reds as his underlying colors and the images appear unsettling at first glance because of the alarming hue of the background. The actually savagery is subtle. Very compelling. Text is in Japanese but the book is primarily illustrations.
