Anne van Biema American, 1915 - 2004
Shoki was a natural subject for Kuniyoshi, who was renowned for his print series of Chinese and Japanese warriors and heroes. In a dynamic composition that fills the page, Shoki bristles with energy as he grasps a small demon in one hand and a sword in the other. The broad, modulated lines with which the figure is delineated intentionally replicate the brushstrokes of ink painting.
