Soga no Hakoomaru Confronting His Enemy Kudo no Suketsune by Yoshitoshi (1839 - 1892)

Original Yoshitoshi (1839 - 1892) Japanese Woodblock Print
Soga no Hakoomaru Confronting His Enemy Kudo no Suketsune

Comments - Handsome scene from the famous tale of the Soga Brothers of the youngest brother Soga no Hakoomaru (later known as Goro Tokimune) confronting Kudo no Suketsune, the man responsible for his father's death. He kneels behind the nobleman, gripping a sword in one hand, looking up defiantly. Suketsune scowls angrily, turning his back on the child, his long pants trailing onto the floor behind his feet. A screen decorated with a crane and waves and doorway opening onto a verandah provides a handsome setting for the meeting. Detailed with touches of embossing in the white sashes and burnishing the lacquer frame of the screen. The Boston Museum of Fine Arts has this image in its collection. This impression is from a posthumous edition published by Matsuki Heikichi between 1893 - 1895.
