Original Yoshitora (active circa 1836 - 1887) Japanese Woodblock Print
Scene from Shinbutai Iwao no Kusunoki, 1874

Comments - Great scene from the kabuki play "Shinbutai Iwao no Kusunoki" at the Kawarazaki Theater, a drama about the great warrior Kusunoki Masashige. Here, his son Kusunoki Masayuki kneels before him with a scroll in his outstretched hands as his father says farewell to him before going into a battle at the emperor's order, knowing his troops are no match for the enemy. Kusunoki sits on a folding stool atop a black bearskin at right, a stern expression on his face, his brows furrowed. He is surrounded by retainers in armor, some exchanging angry expressions. Across the top, a cloth panel encloses the encampment, with the standards of approaching enemy troops visible beyond the hills in the distance. Ichikawa Danjuro IX appears as Kusunoki Masashige. A handsome, colorful design with expressive figures.
