The Great Battle of Kurikaradani between Kiso Yoshinaka and the Taira General Tomonori in 1183, 1857 by Yoshiiku (1833 - 1904)

Original Yoshiiku (1833 - 1904) Japanese Woodblock Print
The Great Battle of Kurikaradani between Kiso Yoshinaka and the Taira General Tomonori in 1183, 1857

Comments - Incredible scene of the 1183 Battle of Kurikaradani in which Kiso Yoshinaka killed the Taira leader Tomonori. The Minamoto Clan launched a surprise night attack against Taira forces at Kurikara Pass, facing the enemies on multiple fronts and driving them into the narrow pass. This terrific triptych effectively conveys the chaos of the attack, with Minamoto samurai closing in on the Taira in their encampment on horseback and on foot, spears flashing under a driving rain. In the center, two warriors attack a general in a horned battle helmet with spears, his tasseled command baton lying on the ground below. Terrific detail and expressive faces in this dramatic and atmospheric illustration. The Boston Museum of Fine Arts has this image in its collection. A great Edo era samurai subject.
