Original Gekko (1859 - 1920) Japanese Woodblock Print
Yoshida Chuzaemon Kanesuke
Series; Pictures of the Forty-seven Loyal Retainers, 1895 - 1903
A Fuji Arts Special Offer Auction

Pictures of the Forty-seven Loyal Retainers- Handsome woodblock scene from Gekko's series based on the kabuki play "Kanadehon Chushingura," which tells the fantastic story of the 47 Ronin, who avenged their master's death. Each print presents a portrait of one of the ronin, capturing some in the quiet moments leading up to the final attack and others in the midst of battle. These lovely designs are beautifully drawn and softly shaded, with wonderful detail in the surroundings. Some feature deluxe publishing techniques, such a silver mica, burnishing, or embossing. The British Museum has this series in its collection. These terrific scenes are a nice option for a collector interested in this classic tale of honor and revenge.
