Special Collection - Various Artists
This page displays our special collection of ukiyo-e prints. These prints represent a variety of artists and genres. Prints that we think are exceptional aesthetically and/or thematically. There's no particular order in the presentation.
This is one of those pictures that once seen cannot be easily forgotten. It's by Kuniteru Utagawa "Otaru Zenibako, the strangeness of the Kou (Sting Ray) fish". Utagawa Kuniteru was an artist in the tradition of the Utagawa school. Born in Tokyo, he studied under both Kunisada and Toyokuni I. He produced prints of a wide variety of subjects, including many depicting the increasing Western influence on Japan, with his main output taking the form of book illustrations and single-sheet ukiyo-e.
