Artist - Kobayashi Kiyochika

Kobayashi Kiyochika

Kobayashi Kiyochika (1847-1915) was a Japanese ukiyo-e artist, known for his colorful woodblock prints often featuring the rapid modernization and Westernization of Japan during the Meiji period (1868-1912). Often referred to as “the last ukiyo-e artist”, Kiyochika’s work oscillates between depictions of modern technology and nostalgia for the past. His style of  kōsenga, or “light ray artworks, explore the play of light against nocturnal scenes.
