Yoshiiku - Cruelty & Carnage

Cruelty & Carnage: Muzan-e ("cruel pictures”) and Chimidoro-e ("bloody pictures”) together make an important strand of ukiyo-e. The most famous example of this genre remains Eimei Nijuhasshuku (1868) by the artists Yoshitoshi and Yoshiiku. Yoshiiku's violent contributions to this series are matched in horror by many other of his prints, ranging from misogynistic murder to kabuki scenes of torture and images of warriors harvesting severed heads in battle.
