Kusunoki Masatsura Rescuing Ben-no-Naishi, 1891 - Interesting triptych depicting the young samurai Kusunoki Masatsura rescuing the Lady Ben from her enemies, stopping for a brief rest as they escape through the countryside. The beauty lifts a blind to peer out of the palanquin she has been riding in, Masatsura standing alongside as his two retainers point to men approaching across a small stream. After the death of his father, the great general Kusunoki Masashige, Masatsura continued his clan's support of the exiled Emperor Go-Daigo during the war between the Southern and Northern courts. Sadly, he died at the age of twenty-two at the Battle of Shijo Nawate. Beautifully drawn with delicate line work and fine detail.
