White Falcon after Koryusai


Koryusai was samurai who gave up his status to pursue life of artist. His views carry strong bushido note, but he is not afraid to do shunga views. He usually made additional drawing corrections on prints and colorized them by hand. It is not known where he received his training in arts but his bijinga views are done in Harunobu´s style. He was a master of the pillar prints and had received Hokkyo rank which is the highest title that artist could receive in Edo period.

Tradition of the Floating World – Artist & Printshop, Muha @ BlackBOX is an example of how some traditions can survive through time and gain root from one culture and epoch into another one. Ukiyo-e, pictures of the floating world, are known through prints and reprints from the 17th century till now. In Japan, during Edo period, ukiyo-e prints served as mass produced posters from commoners. Usually artists would paint for print shop and then print shop would make multiple copies of the work. There was usually mutual understanding or contract between artist and the owner of the print shop, leading to the lifetime relationship.
