The Storehouse of Loyal Retainers - Handsome design from Toshiaki's series illustrating the "The Storehouse of Loyal Retainers" (Kanadehon Chushingura), the classic drama about the 47 ronin and their quest to avenge their master's death. These images feature expressive, realistic figures in nicely detailed settings, and some include deluxe publishing techniques such as burnishing or embossing, or a hand-applied spattering of gofun (white pigment) to simulate falling snow. An interesting series by this student of Yoshitoshi.
Special detail - Burnishing on the black kimono and the hair of the couple in the center.
