Utagawa Kuniyoshis born as Igusa Magosaburo was the son of a silk dyer. Noble thread and iridescent colors surrounded Utagawa from early childhood on and his first artistic attempts were painted kimonos. Born and raised in Edo, today's Tokyo, the young artist had contacts to the artistic scene of the ukiyo-e movement. Already during his apprenticeship Utagawa made woodblock prints, which received great recognition. Portraits of actors, book illustrations and a series of sights of his hometown belong to his early works.

Kuniyoshi, as he was called after he had completed his training, made only a small number of landscape paintings. Unusual for Japanese artists, Utagawa placed fighting samurai and figures from mythology at the center of his motifs. Even in one of his most famous paintings, "One Hundred and Eight Heroes of Chinese History", the elements of battle and fantasy are found.

The generation of artists of the 19th century was characterized by cultural exchange with Europe. While the European eye became accustomed to the forms of Japanese woodblock printing, Asian artists increasingly adopted the laws of perspective. "Kakinomoto Hitomaro" clearly shows an intensely colored foreground and a fading, bright landscape in the background. The interplay of light and shadow found its way into the printing technique. Together with the artist Kobayashi Kiyochika, Kuniyoshi coined the term k?sen-ga or "pictures of sunbeams". © Meisterdrucke
