Tokiwa Gozen and Her Husband Minamoto Yoshitomo, 1881 by Yoshitoshi (1839 - 1892)

Original Yoshitoshi (1839 - 1892) Japanese Woodblock Print
Tokiwa Gozen and Her Husband Minamoto Yoshitomo, 1881
Series; Twenty-four Accomplishments in Imperial Japan

Twenty-four Accomplishments in Imperial Japan - Yoshitoshi's late series "Twenty-four Accomplishments in Imperial Japan" highlights important figures throughout the history of Imperial Japan, from both legend and real life. These terrific images include valiant samurai, brave retainers, loyal wives, and fantastic demons. Beautifully drawn with a wonderful sense of realism and finely printed with rich jewel-tone colors, these designs are a great example of Yoshitoshi's mature artistic style. A great choice for a Yoshitoshi collector.

Tokiwa Gozen and Her Husband Minamoto Yoshitomo, 1881 - A charming illustration of the tender parting between the warrior Minamoto Yoshitomo (1123-1160) and his wife, Lady Tokiwa, as he sets off on his unsuccessful campaign to overthrow Taira Kiyomori. Yoshitomo was killed by Kiyomori, and Lady Tokiwa fled with her children, but was forced to return when Kiyomori held her mother hostage. In return for the safety of her children, she became Kiyomori's lover. Lady Tokiwa bites her kimono sleeve anxiously, looking sorrowfully down as her husband watches from beside a screen. A beautifully detailed print, with a burnished pattern on the black robe.
