One Hundred Pictures by Kyosai - Terrific print from Kyosai's comic series "One Hundred Pictures by Kyosai." These amusing views illustrate humorous mishaps and incidents, poking fun at everyday life or imagining encounters with supernatural creatures. Several subjects feature animals in the guise of humans, such as birds dressed in kimono or foxes taunting men. A student of Kuniyoshi, Kyosai was known as a master of comic and satiric designs. These prints would make an unusual and interesting addition to any woodblock collection. The Boston Museum of Fine Arts has many images from this series in its collection.
