Tsukiota Yoshitoshi and Man Fong of Lyndhurst Terrace

Posted: November 21st, 2023 | No Comments »

These two woodblock prints by Tsukiota Yoshitoshi (1839-1892) – Moon at Yamki Mansim-Kagekado and Samurai Warrior, – both are from a set entitled One hundred Aspects of the Moon 1885-1892 – are of especial interest as the rear includes a plate on the rear that reads: Man Fong, 13 Lyndhurst Terrace, Hong Kong. Annoyingly I don’t have a shot of the plate (the one below is one I found on the web and probably approximate) but it does indicate interest in Japanese woodblocks in old Hong Kong…
