Commentary
Title sheet for "100 Phases of the Moon":  Yoshitoshi began this series of 100 prints in 1885 and finished just two months before his death in 1892.  The subject matter is derived from Japanese and Chinese legends, folktales, and literary sources.  A common element is the appearance of, or hint of, the moon in each view.  The series was quite popular during his life, and continued to be issued after his death.  A special collected volume was made in 1892, for which this title sheet was created.
