The Artist

Utagawa Kuniyoshi (January 1, 1798 – April 14, 1861) was one of the last great masters of the Japanese ukiyo-e style of woodblock prints and painting. A member of the Utagawa school, Kuniyoshi's subjects included many genres and he is known for depictions of the battles of legendary samurai heroes.

Now you can own FIFTEEN full colour High-Quality plates of Kuniyoshi's work, printed with modern state-of-the-art technology which brings out the fine detail of these magnificent pieces.

Producing the very best reproductions in print is a pain-staking and difficult task requiring fine attention to detail, specially since we have to identify the best printing results in every single plate to ensure the highest quality for you.
