The 47 Ronin Assembling before the Night Attack, 1847 - 1852 by Yoshitsuna (active circa 1848 - 1868)

Original Yoshitsuna (active circa 1848 - 1868) Japanese Woodblock Print
The 47 Ronin Assembling before the Night Attack, 1847 - 1852

Comments - Handsome depiction of the 47 ronin assembling in the snow outside a palace, preparing for the night attack on Moronao's mansion. At lower left, a warrior takes a sword from a rolled up straw mat inside a bundle of bamboo stalks. In the center, a crouching man takes a helmet from a storage box while another leans over to remove a sword from a black woven chest. Other members finish dressing by tying sandals or fastening chin straps. At right, Yuranosuke, the leader of the ronin, gestures with his fan. He wears a horned battled helmet topped with his inverted comma crest. Other samurai gather around him, while in front of the building at left, a smaller group of men listen to directions from Yuranosuke's son, Rikiya. A terrific image with wonderful detail, each samurai carefully identified with a name cartouche.
