Commentary
Triptych; 3 panels not cojoined. When the miltary dictator Toyotomi Hideyoshi (1537-1598) was a child he was called "monkey pine" because of his ugliness.  Here Yoshitoshi presents the boy at center asking some soldiers if he could join them.  He will eventually rise from a footsoldier to become a brilliant general.  This is one of several triptychs Yoshitoshi made to document the lives of famous warriors.
