Bill’s Curated Selection Part II - I assembled this interesting and rare collection of Yoshitoshi over the last year. Yoshitoshi works are a personal favorite. I hope you enjoy shopping my collection as much as I enjoyed putting it together. – Bill
Kon Sosho Facing a Dragon on a Rocky Promontory over the Sea, 1865 - Fantastic depiction of Kon Sosho facing a dragon on a rocky promontory over the sea from a rarely seen early Yoshitoshi series. Sosho grips his sword upright with both hands, the wind whipping his yellow robes about him as the dragon emerges from the roiling water, white capped waves splashing against the outcrop. A dynamic design with a striking composition and wonderful detail. The first time we've offered this subject.
