Series; Biographies of Modern Men, 1865 - 1866
A Fuji Arts Special Offer Auction
Biographies of Modern Men - Yoshitoshi's terrific "Biographies of Modern Men" series illustrates the heroes, villains, and strongmen involved in a deadly confrontation between two gambling rings in Shimosa Province in 1849. Like modern day gangs, these two groups of criminals and outlaws engaged in a brutal blood feud. A fine series of portraits of men who, much like the 47 Ronin, became popular culture heroes in Japan long after their time. A great early Yoshitoshi series.
