When we encountered the art of Mr. Gong Yuan for the first time, we saw two rather different styles. There are portraits in a quite specific technique that we have not seen before. And finally there are paintings of cartoon characters following a recent Chinese art movement called 'generation cartoon'.

Collectors of Japanese prints know him for several dozens of woodblock prints that the artist had designed for the Kyoto publisher Unsodo. Guess what kind of subjects?

Chikanobu Toyohara is a leading printmaker of the Meiji era (1868-1912). His woodblock prints are both retrograde and modern at the same time. Many of the artist's print subjects deal with Japan's glorious past. But in the woodblock technique used by Chikanobu one can find a lot of modern features like subtle shading and coloring that were later carried to perfection by the shin hanga artists under the guidance of publisher Watanabe Shozaburo.
