Kanadehon Chushingura - Handsome design from Kuniyoshi's 1854 series "Kanadehon Chushingura," the classic drama about the 47 ronin. Each print depicts a scene from the famous tale of the 47 ronin, who avenged their master's death. Beginning with the helmet inspection at Hachiman Shrine, and ending with the night attack at Moronao's mansion and the final visit to Lord Hangan's tomb, Kuniyoshi illustrates the story with great drama and wonderfully detailed settings, along with expressive figures. A fine choice for a collector interested in this classic tale of honor and revenge.
