A Competition among Powerful Magicians, 1869 by Yoshitoshi (1839 - 1892)

Original Yoshitoshi (1839 - 1892) Japanese Woodblock Print
A Competition among Powerful Magicians, 1869

Comments - Incredible Yoshitoshi scene showing a competition among powerful magicians, who appear with many supernatural creatures. At right, a huge snake menaces a young man astride a winged creature, its tongue darting out of its open mount. In the center, a snarling fox confronts an enormous rat as beauty looks up from a scroll with a spider on it. Just above, clouds of smoke billow from a black bowl held out by a seated figure. At left, an elderly man sits atop a large fish, a beauty rides a crane, and a young man unrolls a scroll with two tengu next to him. A fantastic early Yoshitoshi image with amazing color and detail, including embossing on the elderly man's white kimono and the white feathers of the crane. An outstanding subject illustrating characters from Japanese folklore.
