Description: This print is from the series ‘The 100 Aspects of the Moon’ by Tsukioka Yoshitoshi. The series consists of a hundred prints where scenes from old tales, poems and songs where the moon is involved are depicted. The moon is depicted in many different ways, sometimes it is not even visible directly. In this particular print the moon is hidden behind the blinders, but the moonlight is shining on the head of Gen-i, which seem to be symbolizing the thought that Gen-i is the unsung hero for the Victory of the Toyotomi Government.

This print has toning and slight creases and is backed.
