Referenced on page 65 of "Mori Yoshitoshi Kappa- Ban":
"Fleeing north from Kyoto to escape capture, Minamoto no Yoshitsune is disguised as a porter....... He makes a dramatic exit of leaps and hops in the aragoto ("violent") style of acting."
Bold and dramatic movement, gesture, dynamic mass and strength of style distinguish Mori's Prints; they convey vitality and action. Colors are earthy, natural pigments in keeping with the off-white papers, unifying the design and bold lines in this Print of oursized dimension. (from Frances Blakemore 'Who's Who in Japanese Prints')
