  Yasuo Kuniyoshi - Artist Biography
Yasuo Kuniyoshi was born in Okayama, Japan, where he went to elementary and technical schools, studying weaving and dyeing.
Kuniyoshi's early work is a blend of Orientalism and modernism, characterized by an interest in life forms, a subtle humor, pictorial design based upon receding planes, and a total freedom from illusionism.
Kuniyoshi's early color was earthy, tending to tones of brown, but after 1930 it became luminous with the addition of blues and cool colors on blank white canvas that gave translucency and brilliance.

 Yasuo Kuniyoshi - Maine Family
The background buildings, which are represented as simplified rectangles and triangles of color, reflect the artist's exposure to cubist painting in his use of geometric shapes to emphasize the flatness of the picture plane.
However, the figures, although curiously angular and possessing Kuniyoshi's characteristic almond-shaped eyes and unnaturally pointed feet, are given bodies that exist as three-dimensional entities in space.
Kuniyoshi's inspiration for this approach was quite possibly based on memory portraits in nineteenth-century American folk art.

 Viewing Japanese Prints: Kuniyoshi
Although Kuniyoshi designed prints in a wide variety of subject areas (kabuki, women, landscapes, nature prints, humorous or satirical scenes, cat prints, surimono, shunga, and book illustrations), he is most recognized for his prints depicting warriors, scenes of historical figures and events, and legends.
In 1843, when Kuniyoshi designed a very popular satirical triptych of the shogun Tokugawa Ieyoshi and the earth spider, the woodblocks and remaining stocks of unsold prints were confiscated and destroyed, and Kuniyoshi was investigated and officially reprimanded.
The scene in Kuniyoshi's print depicts Kurô Hangan Yoshitsune as he grasps a pillar on the balcony of the palace at Horikawa.

 UKYIO-E COLLECTION
Kuniyoshi was one of the most prolific of Ukiyo-e artists.
His traditional theatrical and landscape work continued throughout his career, but once his reputation was attained he was able to convert the public to his own tastes for legendary and historical subjects.
Kuniyoshi seems to have taken pleasure in portraying opulent fabrics, suits of armor, weapons, saddles, ships and houses - inserting them into action scenes where they were subjected to the destructive forces whose ultimate source was his vehemently fertile imagination.

 Kuniyoshi
Kuniyoshi's interest in the heroic woman seems to have begun early in his career, with his pre-1820 portraits of the "iron woman" Kane-jo, stopping a runaway horse by stepping on its reins and Princess Kamigashi slaying a giant spider (Robinson S1a).
This is true to some extent even in Kuniyoshi's bijin work that is not historical, where his typical beauty portrait presents a tougher, more lively and spirited type than is typical in other bijin work of the time.
Kuniyoshi, the leading artist of the warrior and strong man print in ukiyo-e, would seem to have been drawn to strong, individualized women as well.

He remained an apprentice until 1814, when he was given the name Kuniyoshi and set out as an independent artist.

Expatriate Japanese pianist Akemi Kuniyoshi is not as well-known as Irène Schweizer or Marilyn Crispell, but she should be -- if for no other reason than this recording with reedman Paul Moss and percussionist Russell Lambert.
Kuniyoshi is a deep student of world music, and it shows in this trio.
And this trio -- particularly its leader and pianist Kuniyoshi -- is criminally underheard.
