The life and work of Tsukioka Yoshitoshi was deeply influenced by a collision of two cultures that could not be more different. Born into the world of feudal Japan, Yoshitoshi grew up in the civil wars of the shattering Japanese Shogun empire. A world shaped by warlords, violence and the code of honor of the samurai, the warrior caste of Japan. The Japanese culture was characterized by a self-chosen century-long isolation from its environment. In this encapsulated world in 1853 broke the Western culture in the form of US gunboats, which forced an economic opening. Western culture of the 19th century was a shock to the technically and militarily hopelessly defeated Japanese. Yoshitoshi initially aroused great interest in Western culture. However, the artist's cultural shock ultimately led to a return to traditional Japanese forms of art and expression.

Yoshitoshi grew up in the samurai culture and became an apprentice with Utagawa Kunivoshi, a master of traditional Japanese woodcut art, at the age of 11. This Japanese art form, with its economic and technical opening to the West, came under pressure from the new mass production of lithographic and photographic images. Yoshitoshi's color woodblock prints were popular in Japan at the end of the 19th century and they were also published in the western-style newspapers and magazines. But his art form slowly disappeared from the cultural context. With the emergence of modern Japan, Yoshitoshi and his art disappeared from public memory and was rediscovered in the 1970s. Today, Yoshitoshi is considered the last representative of Japanese woodcut art.

The popularity of Yoshitoshi in Meiji-era Japan, on the one hand, is a protest against the tendencies of Westernization in imperial Japan, and on the other, it is in his repertoire. His early work was characterized by extreme depictions of death and violence. They corresponded to the life experience of most Japanese in the civil wars of this era. Excessive violence and lawlessness were on the agenda. The clash of cultures left a sense of uprooting and chaos. All of this can be found in the cuts of Yoshitoshi again. © Meisterdrucke
