Series; Sketches by Yoshitoshi
A Fuji Arts Special Offer Auction

Sketches by Yoshitoshi - Yoshitoshi designed this fascinating series of sketches in 1882, taking classic subjects from Japanese folklore and history and presenting them in a comic style. The artist creates an amusing twist on scenes from famous tales and kabuki plays, such as bats recreating a scene from the Chushingura, to humorous images from daily life, like three women laughing and falling to the ground when trying to pull up pine shoots to ensure good luck in the New Year. Like his full size woodblocks, these designs are carefully drawn and printed with the same attention to detail. These witty prints offer a great opportunity to collect an original Yoshitoshi at a great price.
