Kyosai's Sketches

This imaginative print series is from his book One Hundred Pictures by Kyosai (Kyosai Hyakuzu):  Most of the images in the Kyosai Hyaku-zu draw upon Japanese mythology, folklore and proverbs. Although the prints are small they really show Kyosai's skill and creativity.

Kyosai's Gadan

Kyōsai Gadan is a partly autobiographical work and partly a treatise on the history and technique of Japanese and Chinese painting. Much of what we know about Kyōsai's life comes from the pages of this book.
