in Yoshitoshi's series 'Kinsei kyōgiden (近世 侠義傳 - Biographies of Modern Men)'.
It dates from quite early in Yoshitoshi's career, when he was about twenty-six, two decades before his well-known masterpieces such as his great series "One Hundred Aspects of the Moon" (1885-1892), and "New Forms of Thirty-Six Ghosts" (often called simply "Thirty-Six Ghosts") (1889-1892).
