The Utagawa School, founded at the end of the 18th century, produced many renowned woodcarving artists. Utagawa Toyokuni was one of the most important.

As the son of a puppeteer, and with figures of kabuki in his repertoire, the popular Japanese theatre form of the bourgeoisie, the stage characters were not unknown to him. But many years were to pass before the 14-year-old apprentice of the school founder Utagawa Toyoharu found his own style. In 1786 he probably first came to public attention with drawings for a book. Portraits of actors, stage scenes, but also pictures of beautiful women of the "bijin-ga" representation type were his preferred subjects in the future and earned him the honour of being the greatest artist of ukiyo-e, the traditional Japanese genre painting. The sweep of the line and the vividness of expression are the special characteristics of his pictures; colourful accents and contrasts round off these representations. To capture the individuality of the actor was more important to him than to show an artificial and rigid figure or to exaggerate it in the reproduction. The climax of his artistic work is marked by the series "Yakusha butai no sugata-e" ("Pictures of actors on stage"). It was published in more than 50 multicoloured prints between 1794 and 1796 by the publisher Izumiya Ichibei, who was based in Edo (Tokyo).

With nearly 3000 woodblock prints, including more than 90 series and some painted scenes, Toyokuni was one of the most prolific Japanese illustrators of this kind and era. He made the Utagawa School the most influential of the Edo period. © Meisterdrucke
