Yoshitoshi's Individual Triptychs: Numbers 150-199


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 150-199. (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).

尼崎 大合戰 武智 主従 討死 之 圖
(山崎) (戦)
1865 (5) The name of the battle is usually written with the first character 山; it is not known if this character (with a reading of ama) is simply a mistake on Yoshitoshi's part, or a subtle insult (it means 'nun').

  nnKB -- Kawanakajima ō-kassen Yamamoto Dōsan {Dōki} uchijini no zu
川中嶋 大合戦 山本 道鬼 討没 之 図
1866 (6) A number of sources seem to give 'Kansuke' as the name of this person (when looking using the kanji given here - although the usual kanji for 'Kansuke' are different), and he is a well-known person from that battle, but it's hard to reconcile that reading with the canonical ones for these characters. Perhaps it is a little-known nickname for him?

190.2! Moon of the five aspects
  nnKB -- Gojū no tsuki
五條 乃 月
1867 (2) There is probably a complicated visual pun here; gojū, written with a different last character, means "five cardinal Confucian virtues" (), or "five passions" ().
190.3! Snow at Yoshino
  nnKB -- Yoshino no yuki
吉野 の 雪
1867 (2)  
191 and 192 A sash of new brocade weave

It is not clear that these three prints are really a series, since they are from different publishers; they are all about the same kabuki play.

Adachi Yasuke
Adachi Motoemon
  nnKB -- Hayase Iori
Adachi Yasuke
Adachi Motoemon

1867 (4) Keyes gives few details about this print, other than to list the publisher - Marujin - but it seems to be this one, published by Maruya Jinpachi.
Shown are (L to R) Sawamura Tosshō II as Hayase Iori; Nakamura Shikan IV as Adachi Yasuke; and Ōtani Tomoemon V as Adachi Motoemon.

Adachi Motoemon is sometimes read as Adachi Genemon, but the former reading seems to be the usual.

1867 (4) The identity of this print is not absolutely certain, as Keyes gives very few details about it, other than naming two of the personages shown in half-length portraits. Since they match, this is probably it. The publisher of this one is Ōmiya Kinkyū (Sawa Kyūjirō).

Shown are (from L to R) Ōtani Tomoemon V as Adachi Motoemon, Sawamura Tosshō II as Hayase Iori, and Bandō Hikosaburō V as Tōma Saburōemon.

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.
