by Yoshitoshi (1839 - 1892)
Comments - Lively scene from the Taiheiki of the Battle of Komaki and Nagakute, which was actually a series of battles between the forces of Hashiba Hideyoshi (Toyotomi Hideyoshi) and Tokugawa Ieyasu. In the center, a warrior on foot has just knocked the sword from an opponent charging at him on horseback. Samurai stumble over themselves on the ground below. At right, a general on a black horse turns in the saddle to look back with his sword extended as he gallops past the men on foot. At top center, a roofed structure houses an enormous drum decorated with clouds. A great action-filled design, nicely detailed.
