Comments - Fantastic triptych of the young Soga Brothers sneaking up outside the hunting lodge of their sworn enemy, Suketsune, who murdered their father when they were young children. The youngest brother, Juro, climbs the wooden steps, preparing to draw his sword as a beauty sheltering a lantern under her kimono sleeve looks out the doorway. A few raindrops slant across the night sky. The older brother, Juro, holds a flaming torch as he looks over his shoulder, a frown on his face. An incredible scene of the moments just before the brothers will avenge their father's death. Nicely detailed with burnishing on the black caps and accents of cloth embossing in the clothing. A handsome subject with soft shading and fine wood grain impression in in the background.
