Kuniyoshi UTAGAWA is a world-famous ukiyoe artist. This is the ukiyo-e woodblock print’He looks scary, but he is a good man. I bought it from the print laboratory which I have a close relationship with Ryukodo. This unique woodblock print faithfully recreates one of Kuniyoshi’s specialties, “Yose-e”. No frame (Print only). Kuniyoshi UTAGAWA: He was born in 1797 in Hongin-cho, Nihonbashi, Edo (Kansei 9). He was born in the same year as Hiroshige UTAGAWA, who was internationally famous for his landscape woodblock prints, and was active in the same period. He learned painting from an early age and became a disciple of Toyokuni UTAGAWA, the first, at the age of 15, where he was reputed to be a bizarre painter, and brushed up his skills, especially with his skill in musha-e (prints of samurai warriors). Before long, with the Tempo Reforms which emphasized simplicity and frugality, Nishiki-e prints of an actor or a prostitute became unpublishable, but Kuniyoshi evaded the ban by various expedients and made his utmost sarcasm with the ukiyo-e prints of sarcastic Edo bakufu (Japanese feudal government headed by a shogun) with a hint of sarcasm. As a result, Kuniyoshi was applauded by the people of Edo, and his popularity reached its climax. The influence of western paintings is not small, and some works use perspective. He was an incomparable cat lover. [Description of the work]’He looks scary, but he is a good man. What looked like a person’s face at first glance, looked like more than one person from another perspective. “Yose-e” which can be said to be trick art in the Edo period, is one of Kuniyoshi’s specialty categories in his masterpieces. Many naked people gather to form a face. The nose is made up of one person, and the head of the nose is a very interesting piece that is part of his hip. It is fun to count the number of people who represent a single human being because the figures of human beings placed in important places are not wasteful, and their faces, hair and hands are made up of human bodies.
