Nakayama Tadashi worked in a style that combined influences from traditional Japanese ukiyo-e prints and Western painting. He is best known for large and complex woodcuts that often required 50 or more blocks and incorporated metallic inks and gold and silver leaf.

Horses were a recurring theme throughout most of Nakayama’s career. The highly stylized, dynamic horses of this ornate print, with its rich but limited color palette of black, gold, and yellow, are typical of his work of the 1960s; they show his fascination with Indian and Persian miniature paintings, which he first saw on his travels to Turkey and India in 1962–63.
