Uncanny Japan: The Art of Yoshitoshi

February 28 – May 24, 2015 
Prints, Drawings and Photographs Gallery

Worcester Art Museum

Tsukioka Yoshitoshi (1839-1892) is remembered as one of the greatest designers of the Japanese woodblock print at a time when the medium was facing increasing competition from photography and lithography.

This exhibition will feature a variety of Yoshitoshi’s most appealing works – images of horror and cruelty, supernatural creatures, commanding acts of bravery by legendary figures from Japanese history, images of samurai, and sensitive portraits of contemporary women. But it also proposes new ways of understanding his life and artistic trajectory, which became increasingly retrospective in his final decade, reinforcing this sense of Yoshitoshi as an artist living between two eras.
