Uesugi Kenshin Attacking Takeda Shingen, 1876 by Kunichika (1835 - 1900)

Original Kunichika (1835 - 1900) Japanese Woodblock Print
Uesugi Kenshin Attacking Takeda Shingen, 1876

Comments - Fantastic kabuki scene depicting the Fourth Battle of Kawanakajima in 1561 between the forces of Takeda Shingen and Uesugi Kenshin. In the center, Kenshin gallops into the enemy camp on a brown horse, swinging his sword at his enemy in a surprise attack. At left, Shingen deftly thrusts out his iron battle fan to deflect the coming blow. He wears a striking helmet topped with a horned demon and flowing white wig. At right, Shingen's trusted general Yamamoto Kansuke wields a pole arm against an attacker, grimacing with rage. The actors are Nakamura Shikan IV as Takeda Shingen, Bando Hikosaburo V as Uesugi Kenshin, and Onoe Kikugoro V as Yamamoto Kansuke. A dramatic design with large bold figures and vibrant color.
