    Yoshitoshi Tsukioka (1839 – 92) is an ukiyo-e artist who lived in the end of the Tokugawa period through the Meiji period. Trained under the master Kuniyoshi Utagawa, he produced prints of various genres, depicting samurai heroes, the beauties and historical figures, among others.

    Of the wide variety of themes he treated, “yokai” (monsters, ghosts and eerie spirits alike that inhabit the world of Japanese folklore) is worthy of special mention.

    He realized “One Hundred Ghost Stories” (和漢百物語) in his early days and “New Forms of Thirty-six Ghosts” (新形三十六怪撰) at the end of his life. Both of the series are considered as marvels of yokai anthologies.
