Kuniyoshi : from the Arthur R. Miller Collection by Timothy Clark( Book )

8 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This handsome volume explores the life and work of Utagawa Kuniyoshi (17981861), one of Japans greatest print artists. Alongside such illustrious names as Hokusai and Hiroshige, he dominated the nineteenth-century production of the popular genre of woodblock prints known as ukiyo-e, literally, pictures of the floating world. The only major book to illustrate the entirety of the artists work, Kuniyoshi explores his extraordinary imagination across an impressive range of subject matter, from portraits of Japanese warrior heroes and fashionable beauties to satirical themes and innovative landscape prints. Alongside exquisite reproductions of his finest prints, examples of Kuniyoshi's original drawings highlight his unique approach to composition and provide valuable insight into the creative process of this prolific and multitalented artist. Published to accompany a spectacular exhibition, Kuniyoshi is an essential reference for Japanese art collectors and enthusiasts
Kuniyoshi : the faithful samurai by David R Weinberg( Book )

8 editions published between 2000 and 2017 in English and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A pioneering publication which deals with the most famous series - the Seishu gishi den (1847-48) and its sequel the Seishu gishin den (1848) - of the forty-seven masterless samurai (ronin) by artist Utagawa Kuniyoshi (1797-1861). The true 18th-century tale of revenge by forty-seven ronin for the death of their lord was enormously popular in Japan: it was dramatised for the Kabuki theatre and its heroes were often depicted in ukiyo-e prints." "Kuniyoshi was a master in the genre of warrior prints, and his series expressively portrays these warrior 'folk heroes'." "Dr. Weinberg's book also includes translations of the texts which appear on the prints and which recount each hero's exploits. In addition, there are photographs of the relics of the masterless samurai and the ruins of their castle in Ako."--BOOK JACKET

Kuniyoshi Kunisada by Boston Museum of Fine Arts( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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.0Famous 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.

Kuniyoshi by B. W Robinson( Book )

16 editions published between 1961 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Kuniyoshi and his great contemporaries Hokusai and Hiroshige are the three outstanding figures among the later Japanese colour-print designers, but whilst the two latter have been made the subjects of several monographs and special exhibitions, Kuniyoshi has hitherto been comparatively neglected. His output was enormous, covering every form and subject known to the artists of the Ukiyoye, or Popular School, and this best work is characterized by immense vigour and versatility, mastery of draughtsmanship and originality of composition, and, in particular, a warm humanity and deep love and understanding of his country's history and legends. The present study of the artist and his work, largely based on the Museum's extensive collection, has been written by Mr. B.W. Robinson, Deputy Keeper of the Department of Metalwork, to mark the centenary of Kuniyoshi's death in 1861"--from foreword

Voyage sur la route du Kisokaidō : de Hiroshige à Kuniyoshi by Hiroshige Andō( Book )

1 edition published in 2020 in French and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'ouvrage propose un approfondissement sur l'une des plus grandes artères du Japon de l'époque d'Edo (1603-1868) : le Kisokaido.00Cette route qui, en soixante-neuf étapes, relie Edo (l'actuelle Tokyo) à Kyoto (l'ancienne capitale) a fait l'objet de trois séries de gravures en l'espace d'une vingtaine d'années, entre 1835 et 1853. La première série, débutée par Eisen et terminée par le célèbre Hiroshige, qui avait personnellement emprunté la route et pris des croquis, a connu un succès considérable.00La deuxième et la troisième séries, que l'on doit à Kunisada et à Kuniyoshi, prennent le thème de la route du Kisokaido comme prétexte pour représenter des pièces kabuki, des contes ou des légendes du folklore japonais, ne laissant au paysage qu'une place marginale.00Ce catalogue (musée Cernushi, Paris : 16 octobre 2020 -17 janvier 2021), consacré aux trois séries, très différentes les unes des autres, met en lumière un aspect essentiel de l'art japonais, montrant l'incroyable variété iconographique ainsi que le point de vue original de chaque artiste
