Yoshitoshi's Individual Triptychs: Numbers 100-149


This set of pages attempts to show all known individual tripych prints (i.e. those triptychs which are not part of a series) produced by Yoshitoshi; this page shows individual triptychs numbered 100-149. (For others, see the table at the bottom of this page.)

We use Keyes' numbers to identify and order them. For more details on the identification system, please see the header of the complete list of triptych titles for more.

The Prints

This table is currently incomplete, as we are missing images of some triptychs.

If you have either i) images of any of the triptychs for which we are missing an image; ii) a better image of any triptcyh than one below; iii) information about any errors on the page; or iv) missing information about individual triptychs (e.g. publisher, exact date), please let us know.

To see a larger, roughly full-screen, image of any print, please click on the thumbnail; these images are sized to produce reasonable detail (if we have an original that big), and are fairly compressed.

If we have a higher-quality image, that image can be viewed by clicking on the "Large Image" link, which gives the size of the image (for the benefit of those on slow links). Sometimes there is more than one, if our best-quality image has issues (e.g. trimmed margins).

1864 (3) The actual character used in the last word () has a reading of 'chin'; it is not clear if this is simply an error on Yoshitoshi's part, or some subtle word-play (chinbotsu means 'sinking').

  nnKB -- Zen Taiheiki Munetō ika kōnin ni deru zu

前 太平記 辛嶋 合戦
武蔵 五郎 貞世 討死 圖
1864 (9) Sadayo dies fighting in the battle of Karashima, a scene from Zen Taiheiki. The kanji is not given in Keyes, and the title he gives is slightly different from what's on what seems to be this print, but the date he gives (ca. (8) 1864) is correct for this one.

於 小牧山 猿吉郎 春永公 に 仕る [之] 圖
1864/9 (right panel) - 1864/10 (left panel) Sarukichirō (literally, "good-luck-monkey-son") is an alias for Toyotomi Hideyoshi, based on the nickname Oda Nobunaga gave him, Kozaru ("little monkey"), which was supposedly inspired by his alleged resemblance to a monkey.
133$ Yoshitsune leaps over eight boats at Dan Bay during the battle of Yashima
  nnKB -- Yashima Dan-no-ura kassen Yoshitsune hassō tobi no zu

大黒屋 金之助 ?
- Edo Tsuji: Daikoku Kinnosuke ?.)

Thanks to Antique Art Morimiya, which put many detailed images of Yoshitoshi triptychs online - and kept them there, even after they sold; these allowed the confirmation (and correction, in many cases) of captions for those triptychs.
