PMoA said:
Discover the brilliant colors and spirited lines of Yoshitoshi, the last great master of the traditional Japanese woodblock print. Ever inventive in his art, he responded to Japan’s rapid modernization of the late 1800s with greater expressiveness than seen before. His vivid, dynamic imagery served as inspiration for modern-day manga and anime.

Tsukioka Yoshitoshi came of age as an artist as Japan opened to the West after two hundred years of isolation. Navigating both cultural traditions and the upheavals of the modern world, he tackled a wide range of themes: the heroism of samurai warriors, poetic images of figures in nature, female beauty, historic accounts, ghost stories, and the horrors of the battlefield.

This exhibition showcases some seventy works from the museum’s extraordinary collection of Yoshitoshi prints, the largest repository of his work outside Japan.

Wednesday nights work for me as I can just head over after work.

Hit Bishop's Collar for some supper and drinks afterward?
