Chinzei Hachiro Tametomo in Exile at Oshima, 1879 by Yoshitoshi (1839 - 1892)

Original Yoshitoshi (1839 - 1892) Japanese Woodblock Print
Chinzei Hachiro Tametomo in Exile at Oshima, 1879
Series; Mirror of Famous Generals of Japan

Mirror of Famous Generals of Japan - Yoshitoshi designed this fantastic series of fifty-one prints of military heroes from 1876 to 1882. These dramatic images of famous warriors created a sensation with the Japanese public. Full of violence and intense emotions, Yoshitoshi's bold and innovative compositions tackled a historic subject using a modern style. His realism and drafting skill captured the important legacy of these national heroes at a time when Japan was struggling with the aftermath of the Satsuma Rebellion. Classic Yoshitoshi images, these dynamic prints are a great choice for collectors.

Chinzei Hachiro Tametomo in Exile at Oshima, 1879 - Great image of the famous archer Chinzei Hachiro Tametomo (Minamoto no Tametomo) during his exile to the island of Oshima off Izu. He was banished there by the Taira for his loyalty to the former Emperor Sutoku. He stands on the rocky shore gripping his bow and watching as the ship that dropped him off sails off into the distance, the wind whipping his hair behind him. A native islander named Oniyasha sits beside him, gesturing at the departing vessel, a fish and an abalone resting near his feet. A large wave crashes against the shore, and the clouds are tinted golden yellow from the setting sun. A terrific portrait of this legendary warrior.
