Taira Clan: A Gathering at Suma Temple by Kunitsuna II (1829 - 1874)

Original Kunitsuna II (1829 - 1874) Japanese Woodblock Print
Taira Clan: A Gathering at Suma Temple

Comments - Terrific scene depicting a gathering of the Taira Clan at Suma Temple. The young Emperor Antoku is perched on the shoulder of a nobleman at right, who looks sternly out over the retainers and samurai seated around him. He wears a black robe with a beautiful burnished pattern of the Taira butterfly crest over voluminous hakama pants and a tall court cap. At far left a warrior has leapt to his feet, pointing his finger accusingly, the men around him reacting with horror and surprise. Monks dressed in woven mantles can be seen in the room at upper left under a blue drapery featuring the Taira butterfly crest. A fascinating subject with wonderfully expressive figures and attractive color.
