Meher McArthur. The Japanese Prints of Yoshu Chikanobu: Transition and Tradition

This article presents examples of Japanese woodblock prints by Yōshū Chikanobu (1838–1912) in the collection of Scripps College in Claremont, California, where over 360 prints by this artist have been collected since 1944. Although his work is still less well known than contemporaries such as Tsukioka Yoshitoshi (1839–92), Chikanobu is worthy of attention not only because of the fine quality and broad range of his woodblock print designs, but also because of the unusually close personal relationship he had with the military and political changes that took place in Japan in the second half of the 19th century.
