Ushiwaka and Benkei Dueling on Gojo Bridge: An Episode from the Chronicles of Yoshitsune, 1881 by Yoshitoshi (1839 - 1892)

Original Yoshitoshi (1839 - 1892) Japanese Woodblock Print
Ushiwaka and Benkei Dueling on Gojo Bridge: An Episode from the Chronicles of Yoshitsune, 1881

Comments - Terrific Yoshitoshi illustration of the great battle on Gojo Bridge between the warrior monk, Benkei, and the young Ushiwakamaru, the childhood name of the noted swordsman Yoshitsune. The agile young warrior leaps into the air above the bridge railing at right, reaching for his sword as he easily dodge's Benkei's blows. Benkei grips a pole arm with both hands as he lunges forward, stepping on the white cloak that Ushiwakamaru has just slipped out of. An enormous full moon glows softly above the dark mountains, the curve of the bridge leading off into the distance. A fantastic interpretation of this classic tale, with the large figures creating a dramatic composition. A great subject for a samurai enthusiast or Yoshitoshi collector.
