General Minamoto no Yoshiie on Horseback, 1890 by Toshihide (1863 - 1925)

Original Toshihide (1863 - 1925) Japanese Woodblock Print
General Minamoto no Yoshiie on Horseback, 1890

Comments - Handsome triptych showing the famous archer, General Minamoto no Hachiman Taro Yoshiie, on horseback near the Nakoso barrier. He composed a famous poem at the site, which reads "I thought this gusty barrier was a mere name, but why do the wild cherry blossoms so cover the path?" He sits proudly astride his dappled horse, wearing full armor over his blue robes, a quiver of arrows at his back. Two attendants accompany him, one carrying his bow and the other holding a naginata. A large cherry tree blossoms overhead, inspiring his verse. Beautifully drawn with fine detail and touches of burnishing.

Artist - Toshihide (1863 - 1925)
Image Size - 28 1/8" x 14"
Condition - With excellent color and detail. Backed with old paper. Center and right panel attached, left panel separate. A few light spots. Some light toning and soiling. Please see photos for details. Good overall.
