Tsukioka Yoshitoshi in Pasadena

Had a great visit recently to Pacific Asia Museum in Pasadena with my friend Roger O'Leary Archer. We were there to see the exhibit of woodblock prints by Tsukioka Yoshitoshi. The show is terrific.

A view of the inner courtyard at the Museum.

Tsukioka Yoshitoshi

 His work is full of innovative patterning and unique compositions that mix realism with abstraction.
