Tsukioka Yoshitoshi (1839-1892)
Taira no Tadamori (1096-1153) hides behind a tree in a temple's courtyard at night, ready to jump and attack a passing ghost. But it turns out that the ghost is just an old ragged priest who fills the lanterns of the temple with oil from a can.

Very nice impression and colours, partly printed with laquer and with relief printing. Full margins, not mounted. Paper a little bit brownish due to its age, at margins a few tiny holes, paper a little bit thin at lower left corner, a small spot at upper right corner. Early print. At all still in a very good condition.
