Samurai, Ghosts and Lovers: Yoshitoshi’s Complete 100 Aspects of the Moon

Dayton Art Institute
456 Belmonte Park North,
Dayton, Ohio, USA
Feb 22, 2020 To May 03, 2020


Detail: A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see all 100 works in Tsukioka Yoshitoshi’s epic series 100 Aspects of the Moon. One of the outstanding series in the history of Japanese woodblock prints, it represents the culmination of the artist’s career.

This series is a tour-de-force, combining diverse, striking designs with dramatic, historical and mythical stories from Japan’s past, including samurai warriors and court ladies. The prints depict Shakespearean emotion–valor and wit, stories of the heart, drama and enchantment–and they are all linked by the presence of the moon. Together they form a concentrated introduction to Japanese culture, including its history, aesthetics, music, literature, performing arts, religions, and festivals.
