    Estimate

    Utagawa Kuniyoshi (1797-1861)

    An extremely rare and dramatic design where the extra height of the nagaban format has been used to emphasize the majesty of Mt. Fuji and the predicament of the luckless hunt follower, as Yoritomo watches Tadatsune facing up to the giant wild boar, signed Ichiyusai Kuniyoshi, published by Moriya Jihei, good impression, slight fading of colours, good condition, slight foxing
    Nagaban tate-e triptych
