The Great Battle of Kanegasaki, 1864

Comments - Dramatic scene from the siege of Kanegasaki, the final battle of the Nitta clan against the Ashikaga in the war between the Southern and Northern Imperial courts. In the center, an enraged Nitta warrior kneels atop a wounded horse, raising his sword high above his head as the wind whips his hair. about The blue shade of his lips and around his eyes indicate that his death is imminent. He boldly faces two enemies who thrust their weapons at him. At right, a wounded warrior sits atop a lifeless body splayed over a bundle of bamboo, leaning on his spear, a severed head on the near his foot. At upper left, the fortress is in flames with smoke billowing across the night sky. An action-filled image with expressive figures and fine detail in the armor and weapons.
