Time Present and Time Past, Images of a Forgotten Master: Toyohara Kunichika, 1835-1900
"Time Present and Time Past" is the first publication in English to treat in detail the life and work of Toyohara Kunichika (1835-1900), who today is considered one of the last Ukiyo-e masters. Kunichika's designs were drawn from established Ukiyo-e genres like Kabuki actor prints ("yakusha-e") and prints of beautiful women ("bijinga"), he was however a man of his time and this is reflected in his modern use of colour, composition and subjects. The book includes reproductions of 135 of Kunichika's prints, an extensive bibliography and an overview of signatures and carvers seals.
