Yoritomo Watching Military Exercises, 1847 - 1852 by Yoshitsuya (1822 - 1866)

Original Yoshitsuya (1822 - 1866) Japanese Woodblock Print
Yoritomo Watching Military Exercises, 1847 - 1852

Comments - Terrific scene of Minamoto no Yoritomo watching as his men practice fighting skills. Wearing full armor and black helmets, two groups face off in a mock battle, armed with spears with padded tips. Samurai are gathered on either side, and noblemen sit alongside the pavilion in the center where Lord Yoritomo presides from a cushion on a platform. Pine trees frame the scene above. A fascinating subject, wonderfully detailed.

Artist - Yoshitsuya (1822 - 1866)
Image Size - 14 1/8" x 29 1/2" + margins as shown
Condition - This print with excellent color and detail as shown. Three attached panels. Remnants of paper hinge mounts on reverse at top edge. Slight soiling at edges, a few creases. Please note, due to the size, this print may be shipped rolled. Please see photos for details.
