Original Kuniyoshi (1797 - 1861) Japanese Woodblock Print
The Soga Brothers Achieve Their Goal in the Night Attack in the Foothills of Fuji on the 28th Day of the Fifth Month, 1193, circa 1836

Comments - Fantastic triptych depicting the Soga Brothers attacking their father's murderer, Suketsune, at the Shogun Yoritomo's hunting camp at the foot of Mt. Fuji. As the title indicates, the brothers were finally able to achieve their goal of avenging their father's death in this dramatic surprise attack. In the center Soga Goro, wearing his trademark butterfly robe, lunges forward as he thrusts his sword into an enemy, who falls backwards. At right Soga Juro, dressed in a bird patterned kamishimo, swings his sword, sending two adversaries tumbling to the ground. The battle rages all around them, with the Shogun watching angrily from his pavilion at left, surrounded by his retainers. A terrific illustration of this climactic battle, with wonderful detail in the expressive figures and an atmospheric night setting at the base of the great mountain.
