Miyamoto Musashi Attacking the Giant Whale by Kuniyoshi (1797 - 1861)

Kuniyoshi (1797 - 1861) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Miyamoto Musashi Attacking the Giant Whale

Comments - Incredible image of the master swordsman Miyamoto Musashi attacking a giant whale off the coast of Higo. Riding the whale's back, he prepares to plunge his sword into the animal. Kuniyoshi's fantastic design fills the page with the enormous whale, the form echoed by the undulating waves surrounding it. A dramatic, striking, and memorable image with real graphic power."

This reprint This amazing triptych is one of Kuniyoshi’s greatest masterworks. His bold and innovative composition is a testament to Kuniyoshi’s skill conveying a historic tale in woodblock form.

The Edo era original is virtually non-existent in the market. It rarely comes up for sale at any price. Reprints are also very rare. The reprint we are offering is in beautiful condition with rich color, crisp line work, and fine bokashi shading. Don't miss this fantastic opportunity to acquire this outstanding Kuniyoshi image.
