Published in 1890 by Akiyama Buemon. One of the most spectacular actor triptychs of the late 19th century. The face of the pirate is a miracle of block cutting.
Signed:Ōju Yoshitoshi ga, sealed Taiso.
Size:Ōban triptych.
Condition:Fine impression, very good colour, good condition. Some soiling on right and left hand sheets, a paper flaw in the moon. The soiling is often caused by the transfer of the black pigment onto lighter areas.
