Original woodblock print triptych - Utagawa Kuniyoshi (1797-1861) -"Koma-kurabe banjo taiheiki" 駒くらべ盤上太平棋 (Battle of the Chess Pieces: Prosperity and Peace across the Board) - 1843 (Tenpô 14), 7th month
Utagawa Kuniyoshi was one of the last great masters of the Japanese ukiyo-e style of woodblock prints and painting. He was a member of the Utagawa school.
The range of Kuniyoshi's subjects included many genres: landscapes, beautiful women, Kabuki actors, cats, and mythical animals. He is known for depictions of the battles of legendary samurai heroes. His artwork incorporated aspects of Western representation in landscape painting and caricature.
As it is an old ukiyo-e, it has holes.
