Tsukioka Kogyo was a Japanese artist of the Meiji period. He was a student and adopted son of Tsukioka Yoshitoshi, and also studied with Ogata Gekko. For most of his career Kogyo created prints centred on Japanese noh theatre, either as large-scale paintings or coloured woodblock prints, however he also did war and nature prints. Many of the latter were published in series and sold as multi-volume sets. Some sets have been preserved as albums in their original bindings, including accordion-style bindings known as orihon. Although original album books are primarily in institutions, single prints are popular in the Japanese antiques market.
