Rebuilding Kiyosu Castle by Yoshifuji (1828 - 1887)

Original Yoshifuji (1828 - 1887) Japanese Woodblock Print
Rebuilding Kiyosu Castle

Comments - Handsome triptych showing the rebuilding of Kiyosu Castle in three days under the direction of Toyotomi Hideyoshi. Hideyoshi kneels at far left as Lord Nobunaga surveys the construction from astride his horse at right. The powerful daimyo shields his face with a fan, a stern expression on his face. Tiger skin robes fall over his legs, and encase the sword hanging at his side. A young retainer stands before him gripping a large naginata, the blade protectively wrapped in red cloth. The castle complex is covered with scaffolding with men busily working on the task, with carts carrying supplies crossing the bridge over the moat in the distance. Wonderful detail in this panoramic image.
