A Fuji Arts Special Offer Auction

The Storehouse of Loyal Retainers - Handsome design from Kuniyoshi's 1854 series "The Storehouse of Loyal Retainers" (Kanadehon Chushingura), the classic drama about the 47 ronin. Each print depicts a scene from the famous Japanese tale of the 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.
