A Fuji Arts Special Offer Auction

At Izu no Oshima, Chinzei Hachiro Tametomo Shoots an Enemy Warship with an Arrow, circa 1843 - 1844 - Fantastic triptych of the great archer Minamoto no Tametomo (also known as Chinzei Hachiro Tametomo) sinking the leading ship of his enemy Mochimitsu's fleet with a single arrow. He perches upon a rocky outcropping at left, his gripping his bow, having just released the arrow, the wind blowing his robes about him. In the center, Tametomo's mistress, Sasaraye, who is armed with a naginata, and his retainer, Oniyasha, holding an iron club, watch as the ship flounders in the sea, the single arrow piercing its thick hull. At lower left, a group of islanders looks on in admiration. A dynamic composition with outstanding detail and fine bokashi shading in the sky.
