Attacking Inabayama Castle - Handsome scene of Oda Nobunaga's men attacking Inabayama Castle in Mino Province. Kinoshita Tokichiro (the young Toyotomi Hideyoshi) was instrumental in the victory, leading a raid into the castle and opening the gates for Nobunaga's army to enter. Here, fighting takes place outside the walls of the fortress, with men engaged in hand-to-hand combat, swinging swords and spears. At left, a general on horseback urges his men on, directing them with a tasseled command baton. A great atmospheric setting with the trees trunks rising up into the night sky. Nicely detailed and shaded, with touches of burnishing on the armor.
