Kuniyoshi Woodblock Prints

Utagawa Kuniyoshi (1798-1861), a Japanese woodblock printmaker, is someone I had never heard of before his irreverent, funny, sexually comic prints of raccoon dogs and their antics were posted on Pink Tentacle.

He was very prolific and this print of fish near a piling is exquisite in my opinion. Osprey posted one print that appears to be an osprey, too. There are many more wonderful images to explore at The Kuniyoshi Project.
