Night Attack on the Yamaki Mansion, 1859 by Yoshiiku (1833 - 1904)

Original Yoshiiku (1833 - 1904) Japanese Woodblock Print
Night Attack on the Yamaki Mansion, 1859

Comments - Terrific triptych illustrating Yoritomo's daring nighttime attack on the Yamaki Mansion in 1180. Taken by surprise, Taira no Kanetaka (at right behind screen) and his men are caught in their robes under a hail of arrows as Endo Hyotaro and Katoji Kagekado charge forward with spears. One is dressed in full armor and battle helmet, while the other wears only a kamishimo over a kimono and is barefoot. His loose hair streams out behind him and he is bleeding from wounds to his hands and feet. Other warriors lie wounded or dead in crumpled heaps on the floor and verandah. A dramatic scene from this historic event, with fantastic detail in the fine palace setting and expressive figures. An intriguing samurai subject.

Artist - Yoshiiku (1833 - 1904)
Image Size - 14 3/8" x 29 1/2" + margins as shown
Condition - This print with excellent color and detail as shown. Three separate panels. A few light creases. Please see photos for details. Nice overall.
