Ghost/Yokai 幽霊画

Yokai: “Something that is otherworldly and strange, yet captivating and appealing.” Cat witches, earth spiders, giant serpents, magicians, ghostly apparitions, shape-shifting women and flesh-eating hags… tales of mysterious phenomena were given artistic treatment by many of the great Edo Period Japanese print artists. Kuniyoshi and his student Yoshitoshi are most famous for their otherworldly yokai designs, although Kunisada, Kunichika and other artists also produced some exciting works.
