"The stock subjects of Japanese prints - women, actors, and landscapes - have received much scholarly attention, but the warrior-prints have been somewhat neglected, chiefly because a full appreciation of them depends on knowledge of the legends and characters depicted. B. W. Robinson, a renowned Kuniyoshi scholar, fillls this need by telling the stories most frequently portrayed. Kuniyoshi was one of the most prolific of the Ukiyo-e artists, and in the descriptive catalogue of the warrior-prints, which forms the greater part of this volume, Robinson lists over 350 triptychs (large three-sheet compositions) and some 1,500 single-sheet scenes arranged in series". Book about Legends--Japan & Warrior-Prints. Time Period 19th Century. Locale: Japan. (Art, Art, History--Japan, Ukiyo-E Prints, Warriors).
