Brave Warriors of the Shimazu Clan, 1877
Fuji Arts’ Winter Yoshitoshi Senso-e Exhibition

Brave Warriors of the Shimazu Clan, 1877 - Handsome group portrait of brave warriors from the Shimazu clan, who controlled the Satsuma domain, the area which gave the Satsuma Rebellion its name. In the center, a general sits astride a horse, gripping a tasseled command baton as he looks ahead with a fierce expression. A samurai standing next to him holds a furry black standard while another wearing a helmet with a crescent moon rests an iron club against his shoulder. At right, two heroes sit on folding stools, while at left, rebel leader Saigo Takamori sits on a wicker chair wearing a Western style military uniform. Wonderful expressive faces and fine detail in the armor.

Artist - Yoshitoshi (1839 - 1892)
Image Size - 14 1/8" x 28 1/8"
Condition - Finely printed with sharp, crisp detail. From a well preserved, almost untouched collection of Yoshitoshi senso-e. Not backed, three separate prints. Nice surface condition, smooth and not rubbed. Overall very good.
