Description: This is from Yoshitoshi's popuar 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.

The title 'Gosechi' refers to a series of celebrations held each November at the Imperial palace. The print depicts the Gosechi Lady dressed as a nun, playing the koto as two noblemen weeping quietly as they recall the splendid festivities of bygone days. This print evokes a powerful sense of nostalgia, an emotion keenly felt by Yoshitoshi himself as Japan modernized.

There are slight creases on this print, and it has been trimmed, removing the publisher's information.
