The collection represents the different phases of Yoshitoshi's career and the various formats he used: single sheets, diptychs and triptychs, both alone and in series.

It includes works from the '100 aspects of the moon' series, and a triptych with a view of St. Paul's Cathedral in the background, copied indirectly from a European engraving.
