Musha-e - Literally translated as "warrior pictures," musha-e became popular during the Edo era, depicting both samurai from myth and legend and historic figures. Subjects range from single portraits of famous generals to lively battle scenes filled with action, by artists such as Kuniyoshi, Sadahide, and Yoshikazu. Subjects from the Meiji era often depict the Satsuma Rebellion between disaffected former samurai and the Imperial Army, the Sino-Japanese War against China, or the Russo-Japanese War, a genre known as senso-e (literally "war pictures"). Nicely detailed, these great images are a nice choice for a collector interested in the warrior tradition.
