Night Attack of the Soga Brothers, 1858 by Yoshikazu (active circa 1850 - 1870)

Original Yoshikazu (active circa 1850 - 1870) Japanese Woodblock Print
Night Attack of the Soga Brothers, 1858

Comments - Dramatic illustration from the night attack of the Soga Brothers on Yoritomo's hunting camp at the foot of Mt. Fuji. At lower left, Soga Juro attacks Nitta Shiro, a retainer of his father's murderer, Suketsune. Juro glares furiously at his enemy, thrusting out his sword, his trademark bird kimono tucked up for easier movement. Shiro grips a pole arm with both hands, drawing the weapon back. Both men battle fiercely in a driving rain, the ground littered with bodies and weapons. At upper right, a samurai holds out a flaming torch, scowling as he looks at the fallen warriors. Tent walls emblazoned with the paulownia crest of the shogun hang from the pine trees framing the scene, as the rain falls relentlessly against the night sky. A great image from this heroic tale, beautifully detailed.
