YOSHITOSHI Tsukioka (1839 - 1892)

Original japanese print

Series : Sagas of beauty and bravery Suikoden (Biyû Suikoden)

Toraomaru riding a Tiger


In 1866, Yoshitoshi began work on a series called "sagas of beauty and bravery Suikoden". Instead of depicting the traditional characters from the novel "Suikoden", Yoshitoshi chose to use his own set of heroes from japanese history and legends. He also incorporated spirits and monsters, resulting in a very unusual and creative twist on the classic Suikoden theme.
