The House of Kyogoku in the Mountains, 1883 - Terrific diptych showing the famous 16th century samurai and leader Toyotomi Hideyoshi listening to the young beauty Matsumoru playing the koto at the house of Kyogoku in the mountains. The warrior watches her in secret, hidden behind a tree with two of his retainers kneeling behind him. A beautiful garden setting with a full moon in the evening sky. A handsome print with rich color and fine detail, bordered with an attractive brocade design.
