Osono Attacking Keyamura Rokusuke, 1881 - Dramatic image of the young beauty Osono disguised as a traveling priest attacking Keyamura Rokusuke, a retainer of Toyotomi Hideyoshi, whom she thought had killed her father. He fends off her attack, and after learning her name, discovers that he knows the true killer of her father, and that the boy he holds in his arms is in fact her nephew, whom he had found abandoned. Rokusuke clutches the child to his chest, his arm raised to defend himself as Osono attacks him with a knife. Beautifully detailed with burnishing on the black mantle, Rokusuke's black collar, and the black lacquer trim on the folding screen.
