Original Kuniyoshi (1797 - 1861) Japanese Woodblock Print
History of the Ups and Downs of the Minamoto and Taira: The Attack on the Yamaki Palace, circa 1842 - 1843

Comments - Fantastic design of Yoritomo's night attack on Yamaki Palace, which took Kanetaka Yamaki and his retainers by surprise on September 9, 1180. In the foreground, palace troops rush forward along the verandah, directed by Yamaki at the rear. At left, Yoritomo and his samurai attack with spears and a large wooden mallet as Minamoto banners and standards flutter in the night breeze. Across a lagoon, more of Yoritomo's men climb over the railings and charge into the building. A terrific scene with wonderful detail in the architectural setting at the water's edge, with Mt. Fuji visible above clouds on the horizon.

Image Size - 14 1/4" x 29 5/8" + top margin as shown
Condition - This print with excellent detail as shown. Three separate panels. A few wormholes and small losses, repaired. Creasing, slight toning and soiling, staining at edge. Please see photos for details.
