Item description for Time Present and Time Past: Images of a Forgotten Master: Toyohara Kunichika (1835-900) by Amy Riegle Newland...

"Times Present and Time Past" is the first publication in English to treat the life and work of Toyohara Kunichika, currently considered one of the last Ukiyo-e masters. Kunichika's designs were drawn from established Ukiyo-e genres such as Kabuki actor prints ("yakusha-e") and prints of beautiful women ("bijinga"); however, his modern approach to color, composition and subject proves that he was a man of his time. The book includes reproductions of 135 of Kunichika's prints, an extensive bibliography and an overview of signatures and carvers' seals.

Reviews - What do customers think about Time Present and Time Past: Images of a Forgotten Master: Toyohara Kunichika (1835-900)?

Awesome prints!!  Jun 26, 2008
Brilliantly reproduced woodblock prints of Toyohara Kunichika, the last of the great Japansese print masters, dominate this marvelous book. Books on this late-19th century great masters are rare, especially in English. If you are loking for one book on the subject, this is the one to get. Accompanying the color plates, the book also has sections on Kunichika's biography, his arts in historical context, Kinichika's signatures and seals, his publishers' and carvers' seals, and a nice bibliography. If nothing else, marvel at the prints of Kunichika. Move over, Hiroshige and Hokusai! Make room for Kunichika's fearsome looking Kabuki actors and warriors!! Amy Reigle Newland has again added more chapters to the wonderful world of Japanese woodblock prints. Speaking for myself, I'm certainly grateful for her effort.
The Forgotten Master - Remembered  Aug 6, 2007
Having now acquired quite a number of Kunichika woodblocks and taken the time to actually visit Kabuki Theatre in the Ginza of Tokyo, my fascination and interest in the Master's work has grown and the book gives great additional insights and history. Highly recommended for anyone interested in Japanese art and in particular the striking images of the Japanese theatre and life of the past. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
