Yoshitoshi: One Hundred Views of the Moon



Tsuru Gallery invites you to enjoy our latest exhibition, One Hundred Views of the Moon.   Produced during the years of 1885-1892, this series represents Yoshitoshi's greatest achievement.  Yoshitoshi was one of the most famous ukiyo-e artists during Meiji Japan.  In 1868, as the Meiji restoration opened Japan to the West, many artists were concerned with the loss of their culture.  Yoshitoshi took tales from the past, incorporated them with the wide range of human emotions, and brought to life Japan's rich history.  Mystical and intense, One Hundred Views of the Moon leaves one to ponder the fantastical imagination of a genius.
