9781840683189: Samurai And Tiger Wars: Art by Kuniyoshi and Others (Ukiyo-e Master Series)

As the creation of Japanese woodblock prints grew in popularity in the late Edo period, tigers could be found in the designs of many important ukiyo-e artists, either alone or shown in conflict with legendary Japanese warriors and tiger-hunters such as Kato Kiyomasa, “conqueror” of Korea. Images of Kiyomasa and others hunting, fighting and killing tigers form perhaps the most common type of print involving man/beast death struggles.

Other ukiyo-e designs focused on the mythological or “magic” aspect of tigers; in Japanese legend, tigers of a certain age acquired magical powers, and tiger magic was used in conflicts by sorcerer-warriors such as Tora-o-maru, who is depicted in numerous kabuki portraits. Finally, a significant number of ukiyo-e images show the tiger’s image as an accessory – tigerskins worn as items of clothing or displayed as trophies, tiger designs printed onto fabric, and warriors and outlaws with ferocious-looking tiger tattoos.

TIGER AND SAMURAI WARS features over 100 rare and exceptional Japanese woodblock prints of tigers, tigers and samurai warriors, magic tigers, and tiger accessories, presented in full-page format and full colour throughout. The artists featured in the book include Kuniyoshi, Yoshitoshi, Yoshitsuya, Yoshikazu, Kunichika, Kunisada, Kyosai, Kunitsuna, and numerous others – a list of many of the most outstanding ukiyo-e artists of Edo and Meiji, each of whom used their immense artistic talent and imagination to brilliantly illuminate their iconic subject.

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

If tigers ever existed in what we now know as Japan, it would have been thousands of years before the advent of man. The very first representations of tigers in Japanese art, which date back at least as far as the 7th century, must therefore have been copied from China, where tigers were plentiful in number and regarded as divine creatures of great cosmological significance. They were usually paired with dragons in Taoist art, representing yin and yang respectively. In Zen Buddhism, such pairings signify the struggle for enlightenment. Chinese paintings of tigers alone can be found as far back as the 10th century.
Some of the earliest known Chinese tiger paintings in Japan were inventoried in the collection of the Shogun in the late 15th century, including works by the artist Mu Qi. Decades later, these paintings served as inspiration for Japanese monks designing temple screens and doors, as well as ornate hanging scrolls. Japanese artists began creating similar images in the 16th century. As well as copying the image of the tiger from Chinese works, artists in Japan also studied imported pelts. These included leopard skins, and the pairing in some pictures of tigers and leopards can be atrributed to an early belief that leopards were in fact female tigers. Some of the beasts depicted resemble tiger/leopard hybrids. It was not until the late 16th century and early 17th century that a few live tigers were recorded as being brought into Japan.
In the 17th century, some of the most important artists painting tigers included students of the Kano school (a discipline devoted to Chinese themes) and Tawaraya Sotatsu of the Rimpa school; later tiger artists of note include Katsu Gyokushu, Matsui Genchu, Kishi Ganku, and Maruyama Okyo. As the creation of nishiki-e (woodblock prints) grew in popularity in the late Edo period, tigers could be found in the designs of such ukiyo-e masters as Hokusai, Kuniyoshi, Kunisada, Yoshitoshi, and Kyosai – often shown in conflict with legendary warriors and tiger-hunters such as Watonai, Kashiwade no Hanoshi or Kato Kiyomasa. Designs showing samurai warriors battling not only each other, but also with various types of wild creature from both the natural and supernatural worlds, constitute a significant strand of ukiyo-e, known as musha-e; and images of warriors hunting, fighting and killing tigers form perhaps the most common type of musha-e print involving man/beast death struggles.
