Yasuji was born in Tokyo as the son of a proprietor of a dry goods store. It is possible that he attended the printmaking school of Tsukioka Yoshitoshi at a very early age - it is not for sure.
When he was 14 years old, he became a student of Kobayashi Kiyochika. His master Kobayashi was something like the Last Mohican of traditional Ukiyo-e painting and printmaking.
Under the impact of the Meiji revolution with Western achievements and Western art concepts flooding into the country, Kobayashi experimented with Western style elements and integrated them into his own art work - without giving up the unique forms and values of traditional Japanese art.
Thus was the atmosphere and the artistic background, which Yasuji Inoue encountered in the studio of his master.
Representative works include Tokyo Famous Place Painting (Tokyo Shinga Famous Place Illustrated) and this series.
This Ukiyo-e has holes and folds
Also, since it is old, there are stains and marks on the tape.
