Fuji Arts’ Winter Yoshitoshi Senso-e Exhibition

Saigo Takamori's Last Battle at Shiroyama, 1877 - Fantastic scene from the Satsuma Rebellion of rebel leader Saigo Takamori's last battle at Shiroyama. At right, one of the rebels supports him as he collapse into a waiting palanquin, still giving directions to the man reporting to him. In the center, a rebel general gestures with his sword as the Imperial Army troops advance, with soldiers and samurai engaged in close combat as officers on horseback follow. Rain slants across the dark night sky, pine trees filling the background. A dramatic image with expressive figures, beautifully detailed. Includes burnishing on the black uniforms, and a dusting of mica on the sky in the left panel

Artist - Yoshitoshi (1839 - 1892)
Image Size - 13 7/8" x 28 1/8" + top margin as shown
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. Small loss at corner, hole, repaired. Overall very good.
