Original Kunichika (1835 - 1900) Japanese Woodblock Print
Soga Brothers at the Hunting Camp, 1893
Comments - Fantastic kabuki scene of the famous Soga Brothers arriving at Lord Yoritomo's hunting camp at the base of Mt. Fuji. They have come to avenge the death of their father by killing his murderer, Suketsune. The brothers stand on the porch of the lodge as they meet a beauty who will secretly let them in, shielding the light from her lamp with her kimono sleeve. At left, younger brother Sogo Goro holds a flaming torch aloft as a driving rain falls over the night sky, Mt. Fuji in gray silhouette in the distance. Soga Juro stands in the center, frowning intently. A great image from this famous tale, with large colorful figures.
