Musha-e ('warrior pictures') constitute one of the major and most dynamic sub-genres of Ukiyo-e woodblock printing. From Hokusai to Kyosai, virtually all of Ukiyo-e's greatest artists created Musha-e, in particular Kuniyoshi and Yoshitoshi. The Savage Samurai presents over 290 rare and exceptional Japanese warrior prints, presented in full-page format and full colour throughout. These pictures are collected in the same volume for the first time ever, forming a definitive introduction to Ukiyo-e's most visually arresting and exciting sub-genre.
