Utagawa Kuniyoshi One of the 108 Heroes of the popular Water Margin

Tamei Jiro Gen Shogo

The Ukiyo-e is printed on Echizen kizuki hosho washi (a unique kind of Japanese paper) handmade by Ichibei Iwano, a living national treasure. This makes the vivid colors and the soft, warm textures of woodcut prints come to life.

The series “One of the 108 Heroes of the popular Water Margin” is based on the Chinese tale “Water Margin,” which was tremendously popular in Kuniyoshi’s time. The hit series of prints depicting warriors catapulted Kuniyoshi into fame and was published over a decade. The warrior featured in this piece is Gen Shogo, who has a tattoo of a leopard. He is the second son of a fisherman and a great swimmer.
