Yoshimine: Bilder zur moralischen Ertüchtigung (”shushin”), 1883

Interesting design from a six-volume series of woodblock prints published between 1883-1884 illustrating moral teachings. These images were likely used for classroom instruction on moral education, called “shushin,” a program promoted by the Japanese government in reaction to the perceived lapse in public morals, attributed to poor Western influences. A number of different artists contributed to the series, many of them students of the great master Yoshitoshi. These prints features realistically drawn scenes from ancient to modern times, exemplifying the highest standards of behavior. Artist: Yoshimine (ca. 1855 - 1886)
