Biography Inoue, Yasuji (1864 - 1889)

Inoue Yasuji was Kobayashi Kiyochika's only pupil. By the time Kiyochika gave up Western-style landscapes in 1881, Yasuji had designed only eight prints in his own name, but he perpetuated his master’s style over the next three years, particularly in the format of small postcard-size prints, reaching a total of 134 by 1884, with his best known series of small prints being titled "Tokyo meisho" (Famous Views of Tokyo). He also created prints that were nearly identical to those of Kiyochika’s. He died before he could develop a style of his own, at the age of only 25.
