Shigemori and Yoshihira Battling Outside the Shishinden Palace, 1892 by Nobukazu (1874 - 1944)

Original Nobukazu (1874 - 1944) Japanese Woodblock Print
Shigemori and Yoshihira Battling Outside the Shishinden Palace, 1892

Comments - Terrific, dramatic subject depicting Taira no Shigemori and Minamoto no Yoshihira engaged in single combat outside the Taikenmon Gate of the Imperial Palace. Shigemori deflects Yoshihira's sword with his bow as arrows rain down around the pair. Yoshihira drove Shigemori back seven times before the gate, yet the Minamoto withdrew, despite the heroics of Yoshihira. Includes touches of burnishing on the armor and a red orange pigment that has oxidized to a dark tone. A fantastic image and a great choice for a collector interested in the samurai tradition.

Artist - Nobukazu (1874 - 1944)
Image Size - 14 1/4" x 27 5/8" + margins as shown
Condition - This print with excellent color and detail as shown. Three separate panels. A few creases and stains. Small label on reverse. Please see photos for details.
