Original Yoshitoshi (1839 - 1892) Japanese Woodblock Print
Three Deaths at Kawanakajima, 1867
Comments - Dramatic Yoshitoshi triptych depicting the Battle of Kawanakajima between the forces of Takeda Shingen and Uesugi Kenshin. At left, a warrior fires a large cannon on a wheeled carriage. In the center, a Takeda samurai grips his sword above his head with both hands as his horse rears, the battlefield littered with dead and dying warriors. Nice expressive figures in an atmospheric setting.
