The scene depicts two samurai fighting with two sticks. The prevailing color is blue and the characters face each other. They have classic expressions and they both wear a very similar outfit. The scene is very close and both fit inside a wooden frame.

The work has been realized by Kunichika Toyohara,  born in Oshima Yasohachi (Edo period, 1835 - 1900). Kunichika Toyohara was   one of the last Japanese  ukiyo-e  painter His first signed print is from 1852, but it was only in 1854 that he took the go (stage name) "Kunichika". He is best known for his prints of Kabuki actors, using the woodblock technique. He also painted beautiful women and, for some special occasions, historical scenes. Many stories of women are told about him (he seems to have had 40 wives), debts, parties and his need to move frequently: the legend around him talks about 117 removals. It is not clear how many of these stories are true, he was certainly a brilliant painter with a unmistakable talent and a dissipated life.
