Original Sadahide (1807 - 1873) Japanese Woodblock Print
The Forces of Empress Jingu Invading Korea, 1856

Comments - Fantastic triptych depicting the legendary Empress Jingu and her troops invading Korea in the third century. She appears in full armor on a black horse at right, directing her men with a battle fan. In the center a warrior gallops down the steep hillside gripping his spear overhead as a standard bearer runs alongside him. Below, the samurai engage the Korean soldiers at the entrance to a castle, rushing an arched wooden bridge with spears and swords. A terrific illustration of this legendary tale with wonderful detail in the figures and weapons and a striking natural setting.
