Original Yoshitoshi (1839 - 1892) Japanese Woodblock Print
Oishi Kuranosuke Yoshio Leading the Attack on Morona's Mansion

Comments - Fantastic Yoshitoshi portrait of Oishi Kuranosuke Yoshio, the leader of the famous 47 ronin, beating a drum to signal the start of the night attack on Moronao's mansion. He stands proudly, raising the drumstick high in one hand, a spear leaning against his shoulder and his robes fluttering in the wind. Another ronin crouches behind him, looking cautiously over his shoulder. Beautifully detailed with fine line work, burnishing on the black robes and trim, cloth embossing on the white areas of the robes, and soft shading in the background. A terrific image from this handsome series. This impression is from a posthumous edition published by Matsuki Heikichi between 1893 - 1895.

Image Size - 13" x 8 3/4" + margins as shown
