The Night Attack at Horikawa, 1852 - Handsome scene from the night attack at Horikawa Palace, where Minamoto no Yoshitsune sought refuge from his brother Yoritomo. Believing that his Yoshitsune was a traitor to him, Yoritomo sent a force of warriors to attack the mansion. Here, Yoshitsune sits calmly on the verandah awaiting the return of his loyal retainer, Benkei. He wears a vest over a suit of armor, a war fan in hand and a white sash tied around his forehead. In the foreground, his troops stand ready to counter the offensive. Nicely composed with wonderful detail in the armor and setting.
