Battle of Shizu-ga-mine, 1847 - 1850 by Kuniyoshi (1797 - 1861)

Original Kuniyoshi (1797 - 1861) Japanese Woodblock Print
Battle of Shizu-ga-mine, 1847 - 1850

Comments - Fantastic triptych depicting the Battle of Shizu-ga-mine in 1583, where Hideyoshi defeated Shibata Katsuie. Here Kato Kiyomasa leads his men in an attack, wielding a spear as he rides horseback. In place of battle standards, some of Kiyomasa's men carry clusters of bamboo poles gruesomely hung with the severed heads of enemies as they charge down a slope at right. At left, a warrior grips his sword above his head with both hands, his standard topped with two human skulls, that of an adult and a child. An incredible scene filled with action and movement, and the grim reality of war. Terrific detail in the expressive faces and armor. A fine subject for a samurai enthusiast.

Artist - Kuniyoshi (1797 - 1861)
Image Size - 14 3/8" x 29 1/4"
Condition - This print with excellent detail as shown. Three separate panels. A few small holes, repaired. Slight toning and soiling, a few creases. Please see photos for details.
