The Japan Society in NYC is currently showing Graphic Heroes, Magic Monsters: Japanese Prints by Utagawa Kuniyoshi from the Arthur R. Miller Collection
Utagawa Kuniyoshi’s vivid scenes from history and legend, wildly popular 150 years ago, are a major influence on the work of today’s manga and anime artists. This exhibition features over 130 dramatic depictions of giant spiders, skeletons and toads; Chinese ruffians; women warriors; haggard ghosts; and desperate samurai combat.
