Original Yoshitoshi (1839 - 1892) Japanese Woodblock Print
The Great Battle of Yamazaki, 1865

Comments - Terrific scene from the great Battle of Yamazaki in 1582 in which Toyotomi Hideyoshi defeated Mitsuhide, who had seized power by forcing the great leader Nobunaga to commit suicide. Here, the battle rages with two samurai on horseback galloping at each other head on. The warrior in the center grips his spear with both hands, striking an enemy on the ground alongside the neck. The rider's personal interesting personal standard of a hat decorated with fluttering papers and streamers waves overhead. The enemy approaching on a brown horse glares at him, drawing his sword back as he charges. Other warriors battle on foot, with wounded soldiers trampled on the ground below. A great Yoshitoshi depiction of this historic battle with fine detail and attractive color. A fine choice for a collector interested in the samurai tradition.
