Ando Kiemon Entering the Enemy's Camp, 1848 by Yoshikazu (active circa 1850 - 1870)

Original Yoshikazu (active circa 1850 - 1870) Japanese Woodblock Print
Ando Kiemon Entering the Enemy's Camp, 1848

Comments - Terrific triptych depicting Ando Kiemon entering an enemy's camp along the shore at a river. At far right, the agitated warrior has just flung a severed head into the air, which flies over the seated samurai at left, who look up with expressions of anger and disgust. An enraged samurai charges at him with his sword drawn, while others grip their spears, ready to leap into action. A general sits at left on a folding stool, wearing full armor and a battle helmet topped with horns and a dragon figurine. The group is encircled by tent walls emblazoned with a black mon or family crest. On the opposite shore, a row of banners and standards can be scene fluttering above the treetops. Strangely, at upper left, a severed head flies through the air. An intriguing image with wonderfully expressive faces and excellent detail in the armor and weapons.
