Oban triptych. Signed Yoshitoshi ga with seal Taiso; publisher Akiyama Buemon. Title Taira no Kiyomori hi no yamai no zu (The Fever of Taira no Kiyomori). This dramatic scene is taken from the Heike Monogatari (Tale of Heike), depicted here is Kiyomori (1118-1181), the son of a concubine of the Emperor Shirakawa Tenno. As punishment for burning a giant bronze Buddha, Kiyomori was tortured by a fever so hot that the water boiled when he bathed. Kiyomori is attended by his praying wife and son, with Enma, the King of Hell, in the background flanked by two of his judges and terrifying demons. Yoshitoshi evokes the vision of hell and fever with unusual and lurid colors. SIZE 37 x 25.1, 37.2 x 25, 37 x 25 cm Condition: Very good condition with minor wear. Good impression and colors. Some creasing, soiling, and tiny tears to the outer edges. Tsukioka Yoshitoshi was one of the leading woodblock print artists during the Meiji era (1868-1912) and one of the last to work in the traditional ukiyo-e manner. Born in Edo (today’s Tokyo), he showed a strong interest in classical Japanese literature and history. When he was 11, he became a student at Kuniyoshi Utagawa’s studio. Under his teacher’s guidance, he showed exquisite draftsmanship skills and learned how to draw from life, something not necessarily part of the training schools of painting and illustration in Japan.

Vertical oban. Signed Yoshitoshi with seal; publisher Akiyama Buemon. Title Seppu no gyogetsu - Kobayashi Heihachiro (Dawn Moon and Tumbling Snow - Kobayashi Heihachiro), number 79 from the series Tsuki no hyakushi (One Hundred Aspects of the Moon). The warrior Kobayashi Heihachiro, wielding a sword as he defends his master Ko no Moronao's mansion during the night attack, in a scene from Kanadehon Chushingura. Heihachiro is disguised in his nurse's kimono, as he attempts to catch the attackers off guard. Blindprinting to the white tile cartouche. SIZE of the sheet 35.2 x 23.7 cm Condition: Good condition with minor wear and slight soiling and browning of paper. Slightly trimmed margins. Provenance: From the estate of Sear Hang Hwie Pao (1937-2009). Pao was one of Canada’s leading dealers of Japanese and Chinese porcelain and works of art. His antique store, Pao & Moltke Ltd., owned together with his wife Mrs. von Moltke, who descended from a German and Danish noble family, was a fixture in Toronto’s trendy Yorkville area from the 1980s to early 2000s. This print is part of Yoshitoshi's famous series One Hundred Aspects of the Moon, which consists of one hundred prints with the moon as a unifying motif and depicts scenes from traditional Chinese and Japanese history and lore. Prints from the series were released individually or in groups every few months, with the final image completed shortly before Yoshitoshi's death. The series proved tremendously popular, with patrons lining up to purchase the new releases as soon as they became available. Today, One Hundred Aspects of the Moon remains Yoshitoshi's most well-known work. In the final act of the famous kabuki play Kanadehon Chushingura (‘The Treasury of Loyal Retainers’), the 47 ronin (masterless samurai) attacked the mansion of the villain Moronao to avenge their lord on a snowy moonlit night. In this print, Yoshitoshi chose to illustrate this famous event from an unusual angle, focusing on Kobayashi Heihachiro, Moronao’s retainer, instead of showing one of the ronin who are the heroes of the story. Heihachiro defended his lord with great courage but was ultimately killed. Tsukioka Yoshitoshi was one of the leading woodblock print artists during the Meiji era (1868-1912) and one of the last to work in the traditional ukiyo-e manner.

Today, One Hundred Aspects of the Moon remains Yoshitoshi's most well-known work. Fujiwara no Yasumasa (958–1036) was a courtier and famous musician in the Heian court. The legend recounts that Yasumasa had a brother known as Hakamadare Yasusake, who was an outlaw. One evening under the full moon, Yasumasa was walking through the moors and playing his flute when Hakamadare, in need of new clothes, crept behind Yasumasa, intent to kill him for his robes. But Hakamadare became mesmerised by the music he heard from the flute so continued to follow him home. Yasumasa finally noticed who was behind him; he gave Hakamadare the robes and sent him away, saying words to the effect: ‘Next time, ask.’ Tsukioka Yoshitoshi was one of the leading woodblock print artists during the Meiji era (1868-1912) and one of the last to work in the traditional ukiyo-e manner.

SIZE of the sheet 34.7 x 24 cm Condition: Good condition with minor wear and slight browning of paper. Slightly trimmed margins. Provenance: From the estate of Sear Hang Hwie Pao (1937-2009).

The series proved tremendously popular, with patrons lining up to purchase the new releases as soon as they became available. Today, One Hundred Aspects of the Moon remains Yoshitoshi's most well-known work. Ono no Komachi was a Japanese waka poet, one of the Rokkasen (six best waka poets of the early Heian period) and was renowned for her extraordinary beauty. Several legends tell of her mistreatment of her many lovers. In the arts, she is often depicted as an old, withered hag and has thus become a symbol of the impermanence of beauty. The rich brocade robes that Komachi wears in this design are based on the costume that Komachi would wear in a Noh play. Embossing on the robes enhances the richness of the print. These robes were called karaori, literally “Chinese weaving,” because they were derived from Chinese brocades – the term came to be used specifically for the ornate outer robes used in female roles. Komachi’s battered straw hat suggests the state into which she has fallen, while the susuki grasses behind her indicate the wildness of the overgrown cemetery.

Yoshitoshi depicts Soga Goro Tokimune in the moments just before their plan for revenge will be set into action, gripping his sword in hand as he spies a cuckoo flying past the crescent moon above. In Japanese folklore, the cuckoo calls spirits into the next world, foreshadowing the fate of the brave warrior.

Title Napeizan Shogetsu - Soso (Rising Moon Over Mount Nanping - Cao Cao), number 3 from the series Tsuki no hyakushi (One Hundred Aspects of the Moon). Cao Cao is crossing the Yangzi River on the night before the decisive Battle of the Red Cliffs. He stands on the prow of a boat at the head of 830,000 troops, in full, though anachronistic, Chinese military regalia. A following breeze stirs his robes, and mists swirl over the river. The moon rises over the distant cliffs; two crows fly overhead. SIZE of the sheet 34.7 x 24 cm Condition: Good condition with minor wear and slight browning of paper.

The series proved tremendously popular, with patrons lining up to purchase the new releases as soon as they became available. Today, One Hundred Aspects of the Moon remains Yoshitoshi's most well-known work. A famous episode in the semi-historical San guo yan yi, Romance of the Three Kingdoms, forms the basis for this design. Written in the fourteenth century, the Romance is still widely read today. The story unfolds during the civil wars of early third century China, when the Han empire was breaking up into three separate kingdoms. The major character in the story is Cao Cao (Japanese Soso), the son of a low ranking solider. Cao Cao rose to prominence when he put down a rebellion of the Yellow Turbans in the Year 184. Having expelled them from Shandong province in northeastern China, he proceeded to make the area a powerbase from which he attempted to become emperor himself – he was successful to the extent that one his sons became the first emperor of the Wei dynasty. Cao Cao’s name in the title cartouche is written appropriately in square, classical Chinese characters. In China a phrase meaning “Speak of Cao Cao, and Cao Cao comes” is a close equivalent of the English “Speak of the devil…” Tsukioka Yoshitoshi was one of the leading woodblock print artists during the Meiji era (1868-1912) and one of the last to work in the traditional ukiyo-e manner.

Nitta Yoshisada offering a sword to the Dragon God that controls the tide, asking him to withdraw the tide so his army could pass safely along the shore.

Today, One Hundred Aspects of the Moon remains Yoshitoshi's most well-known work. Nitta no Yoshisada, was general in the Hojo army, who shifted his support to Emperor Go-Daigo when Go-Daigo escaped from exile in 1333. Realizing that the route to the Hojo stronghold was blocked by the Inamura cliffs and the enemy’s fleet, Yoshida offered his sword and prayers to the deities of the sea for a safe passage for his army. His prayers were heard and the tide receded, forcing the army’s fleet to retreat and opening up a passage tot the Hojo’s castle. The dawn light in this design has been printed with a mercuric pigment which would have been orange when the print was first made. It has since oxidized into the color of morning clouds. Such pigments were expensive and used in the printing of the finest impressions of ukiyo-e. It is assumed that they were chosen specifically for the shades given by their eventual oxidation. Tsukioka Yoshitoshi was one of the leading woodblock print artists during the Meiji era (1868-1912) and one of the last to work in the traditional ukiyo-e manner.

This print is part of Yoshitoshi's famous series One Hundred Aspects of the Moon, which consists of one hundred prints with the moon as a unifying motif and depicts scenes from traditional Chinese and Japanese history and lore. Prints from the series were released individually or in groups every few months, with the final image completed shortly before Yoshitoshi's death. The series proved tremendously popular, with patrons lining up to purchase the new releases as soon as they became available. Today, One Hundred Aspects of the Moon remains Yoshitoshi's most well-known work. Taira no Tsunemasa was both a military leader and fine musician, especially known for his skill in playing the biwa (short-necked lute). It was said that the goddess of the Chikubushima shrine, Benten, was moved by his music and appeared as a white dragon promising victory. However, the Taira were defeated and Tsunemasa was killed. His lute was placed in a shrine constructed in his memory, and the story became the subject of the Noh play Chikubushima. Tsukioka Yoshitoshi was one of the leading woodblock print artists during the Meiji era (1868-1912) and one of the last to work in the traditional ukiyo-e manner. Born in Edo (today’s Tokyo), he showed a strong interest in classical Japanese literature and history. When he was 11, he became a student at Kuniyoshi Utagawa’s studio. Under his teacher’s guidance, he showed exquisite draftsmanship skills and learned how to draw from life, something not necessarily part of the training schools of painting and illustration in Japan. Museum comparison: A closely related print is in the collection of the Art Gallery of New South Wales, accession number 258.2012.28.
