Utagawa Kuniyoshi (1797-1861)
This drawing looks like a Ronald Searle avant-la lettre
Today I saw an exhibition of Utagawa Kuniyoshi in The Royal Academy. I find no words to express HOW MUCH I LOVED THESE PRINTS! I felt in complete awe and I want to become Japanese to be able to draw with such grace and dexterity! Can you imagine that this man was a contemporary of Goya, Beethoven, Marx and Darwin!!!!!!!! If you live in London I urge you not to miss it.
