Yoshitoshi's thirty-six ghosts

Yoshitoshi's thirty-six ghosts
Stevenson, John
Call Number
NE 1325 . T76 S73 1992
2nd Floor Fine Art
Book Review
A beautiful book showing woodblock prints of women made by this famous Japanese artist in the late 1800's when Japan was moving away from their isolated and traditional ways and beginning to deal with European influences during the Meiji Dynasty. I found the explanations surrounding Yoshitoshi's depiction of women as ghosts quite interesting, and sometimes a bit disturbing.
