Famous Names at the Battle at Fujikawa, 1892 by Nobukazu (1874 - 1944)

Original Nobukazu (1874 - 1944) Japanese Woodblock Print
Famous Names at the Battle at Fujikawa, 1892

Comments - Handsome scene from the life of the great Toyotomi Hideyoshi, who is regarded as Japan's second great unifier. As a young man, he was known as Kinoshita Tokichiro, and this image depicts his first battle at Fujikawa. Just as he reached the battlefield, he discovered that the enemy troops were retreating. He stationed himself in the reeds along the river, waiting for the opportunity to ambush a general. When Ito Hyuga no Kami, the commander of the enemy forces, attempted to cross the river at that point, Tokichiro leapt out at him, stabbing his horse and unseating the rider. He is shown here at the moment of his attack, thrusting his spear forward as he stans in the shallow water. A pine tree frames the view at left, with the peak of Mt. Fuji rising in the distance. Detailed with burnishing on the armor.
