Considered one of the last great masters of ukiyo-e art, Utagawa Kuniyoshi (1797–1861) created Cat Geisha Metal Bookmark as a way to bypass 1840s censorship laws in Japan. Such laws prohibited expressions of wealth, irreverence and anything sexually charged. Kuniyoshi's works were varied, featuring landscapes, women, Kabuki actors, cats and mythical beasts, as well as scenes of samurai battle. He was also noted for blending aspects of Western art into his landscapes and caricatures.
