Series; Legend of the Loyal Retainers, 1864
Legend of the Loyal Retainers - Terrific portrait from a chuban size series by Yoshitora depicting the famous 47 ronin, arranged by kana syllables. These lively designs show the ronin during the night attack at Moronao's mansion, swinging swords, fending off attackers, and searching for enemies. Each samurai wears the ronin's trademark black and white dogtooth bordered robe. Armor and weapons are carefully detailed, and the faces are expressively rendered. A handsome design and a nice choice for samurai enthusiast interested in this classic tale of honor and revenge.
