Yoshitoshi Tsukioka (Taiso), 1839-1892    The Odd Meiji Genius
Yoshitoshi is considered to be one of the greatest artists of the Meiji era. He started his career as a pupil of Kuniyoshi. Yoshitoshi produced a number of famous print series during his lifetime - the most famous ones being the '100 Aspects of the Moon', series about beautiful women and his ghost series. Until his early fourties, the artist's life was a struggle for financial survival. Only in his late years he found public recognition and commercial success. Yoshitoshi suffered from depression and mental illness and died at the age of 53 from a cerebral hermorrhage.
