Mirror of Famous Generals of Japan - Yoshitoshi designed this fantastic series of fifty-one prints of military heroes from 1876 to 1882. These dramatic images of famous warriors created a sensation with the Japanese public. Full of violence and intense emotions, Yoshitoshi's bold and innovative compositions tackled a historic subject using a modern style. His realism and drafting skill captured the important legacy of these national heroes at a time when Japan was struggling with the aftermath of the Satsuma Rebellion. Classic Yoshitoshi images, these dynamic prints are a great choice for collectors.

Tokugawa Ieyasu at the Entrance to a Palace, 1876 - Terrific image of Tokugawa Ieyasu (1542 - 1611), the first shogun and founder of the Tokugawa Shogunate, passing through the impressive gateway of a palace followed by several of his retainers. He wears a black robe and a formal court cap, and holds a fan upright between both hands, a sober expression on his face. A nice portrait of this outstanding figure from Japanese history, with fine architectural detail, soft bokashi shading, and a subtle burnished pattern on the black robe.
