Description: This is one print from Yoshitoshi's "Lives of Modern People" series depicting a range of personalities from modern and historical times. These prints were published as supplements for certain issues of the Yamato Newspaper, and would have been distributed to subscribers.

This particular print shows Japanese Bakufu intendant Egawa (Hidetatsu) Tarozaemon (1801-1855) playing the koto for the lord of the Mito domain, while two women listen from behind a screen. It is number 13 in Yoshitoshi's series of supplements, and was printed to accompany issue 311 of the Yamato Newspaper.

The impressive expression shown in the face of the lord of the Mito domain and in the hands of the two figures is particularly impressive, and characteristic of a Yoshitoshi print.

The print has many faint creases, some minor soiling, and a small ink mark. The lower margin appears to have been trimmed.
