Tsukioka Yoshitoshi (1839-1892) is perhaps the most important Japanese print artist of the late 19th century. Yoshitoshi lived at a time when Japan was just opening to the outside world and experiencing major political, social and economic changes. His prints often depict well-known stories from Japanese history and legend but present them in highly original, sometimes shocking compositions that exhibit a range of influences. This exhibition features approximately 130 of Yoshitoshi’s prints and drawings, representing the full span of his artistic career. The prints come from a private Las Vegas collection as well as the Pacific Asia Museum collection and offer a rare opportunity to understand an artist whose influence on Japanese graphic art and design continues to this day.

This touring exhibition is organized by Chris Uhlenbeck and accompanied by the catalogue Yoshitoshi: Masterpieces from the Ed Freis Collection, Hotei Publishing, 2011. The exhibtion at Pacific Asia Museum is supported by Toyota Financial Services, the Los Angeles County Arts Commission, Sid and Betsey Tyler, and Roy and Maurine Oban.
