Complete Picture of the Nineteen Retainers of Yoshitsune, 1859 by Kuniteru II (1829 - 1874)

Original Kuniteru II (1829 - 1874) Japanese Woodblock Print
Complete Picture of the Nineteen Retainers of Yoshitsune, 1859

Comments - Terrific triptych of the great Minamoto leader Yoshitsune with his nineteen loyal retainers in traveling in his ship. The warrior monk Benkei stands in the prow, keeping a lookout for enemies, his monk's mantle wrapped about his head. Yoshitsune sits in the center of the cabin, wearing armor and a horned helmet, a folding fan in his hand. White-capped waves crash against side of the ship, and at right, tassels and banners flutter in the wind. A fantastic woodblock with wonderful detail, and a classic samurai subject. The Boston Museum of Fine Arts has this image in its collection.
