Summary
On December 8, 1941, artist Yasuo Kuniyoshi awoke to find himself branded an 'enemy alien' by the US government in the aftermath of Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor. The crisis forced Kuniyoshi to rethink his pictorial strategies and to confront questions of loyalty, assimilation, national and racial identity that he had carefully avoided in his prewar art. As an immigrant who had proclaimed himself to be as 'American as the next fellow,' the realization of his now precarious status catalyzed the development of an emphatic identity construct that would underlie Kuniyoshi's art and public image for the remainder of his life. This book offers an analysis of Kuniyoshi's pivotal works. It examines Kuniyoshi's imagery and writings as vital means for him to engage, albeit often reluctantly, in discussions about American democracy and ideals at a time when racial and national origins were grounds for mass incarceration and discrimination
