Oishi Sezaemon Nobukiyo and Terasaka Kichiemon Nobuyuki, 1884 - Terrific double portrait from Kyosai's Chushingura series depicting the famous 47 ronin. Here, the samurai Oishi Sezaemon Nobukiyo and Terasaka Kichiemon Nobuyuki stand in the snow preparing for the night attack on Lord Moronao's mansion. The fellow at left leans forward, holding his helmet in his hand, his sleeves pushed up above the elbows. His companion uses his teeth to tighten his wrist strap. Each wears the ronin's trademark robe with a dogtooth border. Beautiful detail in the armor and weapons.
