The ukiyo-e depicts Musashi Miyamoto, an expert swordsman in the early Edo period, based on the legend of killing whales. It is a big whale that lies full of three pictures. The surface of the sea rose diagonally and was so rough that he lost his sense of balance. On the other hand, there were dark clouds in the sky which was cut off at the upper right of the screen, but Musashi’s expression on the back of the whale was full of confidence without a trace. Kuniyoshi Utagawa is an ukiyo-e artist who was active at the end of Edo period. His unique style has earned him the nickname “a bizarre painter” and in recent years has gained popularity among a wide range of generations as a result of a growing tendency to reevaluate his work. In the banzuke of Ukiyoe artists at that time, Hiroshige of Meishoe was listed as Kuniyoshi of Mushae. His works, which are full of rebellious and satirical spirits, won overwhelming support from the people at that time, and many disciples gathered to form the largest faction of Ukiyoe artists. The genealogy extends to Japanese-style painters in the Showa period.
