Original Yoshitora (active circa 1840 - 1880) Japanese Woodblock Print
Lineage of the Tokugawa Shoguns

Comments - Great design featuring portraits of the fifteen Tokugawa Shoguns, with the first Shogun Ieyasu seated at top center in a black court robe with a beautiful burnished pattern. The shoguns surrounding appear dressed in a variety of clothing, including formal court robes and armor. In the very center sits the Ietsugu, the boy who became the seventh shogun at the age of three, but sadly died at the age of six. At bottom right, the fourteenth Shogun Iemochi sits on a folding stool holding a tasseled command baton, while at lower left the fifteenth and final Tokugawa Shogun Yoshinobu is seated on a Western style chair wearing a black jacket over a button front shirt, a top hat in hand. Each is identified by a red name cartouche, and listed in the text panel above. A handsome design with vibrant color.
