Description: This is one print from Yoshitoshi's "Twenty-four Accomplishments in Imperial Japan" series depicting important Japanese historical figures (mostly samurai).

This particular print shows Nara period Japanese scholar and noble Kibi Daijin (695–775), also known as Kibi no Makibi, seated at a Chinese table. Kibi travelled to Tang China as part of a Japanese mission with Abe no Nakamaro and Genbō in 717-718, and ended up staying for 17 years.

The carving of Kibi Daijin's beard is very fine, and the colours of the print are rich.

There is some minor running to the pigments, and a few small ink stains.
