View of the Headquarters at the Battle of Shizugatake in the Taiheiki, 1867 - Terrific triptych depicting a headquarters during the Battle of Shizugatake between the forces of Toyotomi Hideyoshi and Oda Nobunaga. In the center, warriors escort a captured prisoner to the commander, who is seated on a folding stool beneath the pine trees at left. The prisoner's hands are tied behind his back and his upper arms bound, with samurai closely guarding him. He scowls ferociously, the wind blowing his loose hair about his face. Cloth panels emblazoned with a paulownia crest surround the encampment, and other troops march up the hill at right. A great early Yoshitoshi warrior triptych with wonderful detail in the expressive figures.
