Tsukioka Yoshitoshi 月岡芳年
(1839 – June 9, 1892)

also named Taiso Yoshitoshi 大蘇 芳年), a Japanese artist.

He is widely recognized as the last great master of Ukiyo-e, a type of Japanese woodblock printing. He is additionally regarded as one of the form's greatest innovators. His career spanned two eras – the last years of feudal Japan, and the first years of modern Japan following the Meiji Restoration. Like many Japanese, Yoshitoshi was interested in new things from the rest of the world, but over time he became increasingly concerned with the loss of many aspects of traditional Japanese culture, among them traditional woodblock printing.

By the end of his career, Yoshitoshi was in an almost single-handed struggle against time and technology. As he worked on in the old manner, Japan was adopting Western mass reproduction methods like photography and lithography. Nonetheless, in a Japan that was turning away from its own past, he almost singlehandedly managed to push the traditional Japanese woodblock print to a new level, before it effectively died with him.

Tsukioka Kogyo 月岡耕漁 (Tsukioka Koogyo)

1869-1927

明治2年3月7日(1869年4月18日) - 昭和2年(1927年)2月25日)



His style was distinctive and so were his subjects - Noh plays.

Kogyo was born under the real name of Hanyu Sadanosuke in Tokyo. When the young boy was fifteen years old, his mother married Tsukioka Yoshitoshi, the famous ukiyo printmaker. From his stepfather he received his new family name Tsukioka and his first lessons in Japanese printmaking.

Later the young man became the student of another well-known print artist of the Meiji period, Ogata Gekko. Following an old Japanese tradition, he received a new first name from his teacher - Kogyo. The name game was finished and a new artist was born - Kogyo Tsukioka.
