Description: This is from Yoshitoshi's popular series 'One Hundred Aspects of the Moon.', a total of 100 large nishiki-e prints, all of which were based on moon-related scenes from Japanese and Chinese stories, poems, and songs, took eight years to complete.

After the Hogen Rebellion in 1156, the courtier and musician Fujiwara no Moronaga was exiled to the island of Shikoku. The print depicts Fujiwara no Moronaga playing his biwa longing for home by moonlight at Mt. Miyaji. The approaching woman from right is a water goddess drawn to him in appreciation of his performance.

The margins of this print are a little browned but it's in a good condition overall for its age.
