Time Present and Time Past
Images of A Forgotten Master :Toyohara Kunichika, 1835-1900Book - 1999
"Times Present and Time Past" is the first publication in English to treat the life and work of Toyohara Kunichika, currently considered one of the last Ukiyo-e masters. Kunichika's designs were drawn from established Ukiyo-e genres such as Kabuki actor prints ("yakusha-e") and prints of beautiful women ("bijinga"); however, his modern approach to color, composition and subject proves that he was a man of his time. The book includes reproductions of 135 of Kunichika's prints, an extensive bibliography and an overview of signatures and carversb seals.
