The Demon of Oeyama, 1847 by Yoshitora (active circa 1840 - 1880)

Original Yoshitora (active circa 1840 - 1880) Japanese Woodblock Print
The Demon of Oeyama, 1847

Comments - Fantastic scene depicting the retainers of Minamoto no Yorimitsu (Raiko) at the mountain lair of the terrible demon, Shuten-doji. Disguised as traveling monks, Raiko and his men traveled to the monster's hideout on Mt. Oe to rescue the young beauties he had kidnapped. They are shown here enjoying a banquet, plying Shuten-doji with sake to put him into a drunken stupor. The samurai at right pours sake from a large container into a kettle for warming, grimacing as he looks back over his shoulder. The beauty behind him carries a long-handled sake server, while on the verandah beyond, several women look wistfully out over the rugged mountain landscape. A nicely detailed image from this famous tale.

Artist - Yoshitora (active circa 1840 - 1880)
Image Size - 14 5/8" x 9 3/4" + margins as shown
Condition - This print with excellent detail as shown. Slight paper remnants on reverse at top edge from previous mounting. Small loss, a few wormholes, repaired. Creasing, slight soiling, a few marks. Please see photos for details.
