On view through June 13, 2010, at the Japan Society Gallery, Kuniyoshi’s ‘Graphic Heroes, Magic Monsters’ covers the work of Utagawa Kuniyoshi.

About the exhibition –

Utagawa Kuniyoshi’s vivid scenes from history and legend, wildly popular 150 years ago, are a major influence on the work of today’s manga and anime artists. This exhibition features over 130 dramatic depictions of giant spiders, skeletons and toads; Chinese ruffians; women warriors; haggard ghosts; and desperate samurai combat.

A fantastic and full review has been published in The Bee.

The Japan Society Gallery is at 333 East 47th Street, New York, NY.
