Internet Weekly Report - Art And Culture
Taiso Yoshitoshi [Bio
Three of my "odd" favorites from this exhibit were "Shortsighted Old Man And Ineffectual Ghost", which was a parody of the great Hiroshige, Jiraiya the magician riding a toad in "Jiraiya Distributes Stolen Goods Among The Poor" and “Saito Oniwakamaru and the (Red) Carp”. Yoshitoshi, who was the last great Ukiyo-e artist, was also one of Japan's first western style newspaper illustrators, and his influence still lives on today in Japanese manga (comics) and anime (animated movies). BTW, Iga no Tsubone (below) was my favorite at the museum.
