Commentary
Triptych; 3 panels are not cojoined. Iwami Jutaro to the rescue:  Ghost stories were popular in the 19th century with sightings reported in the press and described in novels.  They were especially popular in the summer as spine-chilling entertainment.  Throughout his career Yoshitoshi would do ghostly depictions, refining their visages and relishing their grotesque acts.  Early prints like this are crowded with visual elements, but later images focus on just a few features.
