Complete View of the Great Battle between the Two Generals of Kai Province and Echigo Province at Kawanakajima, 1859

Comments - Terrific scene from the Battle of Kawanakajima of Uesugi Kenshin galloping into the camp of his enemy, Takeda Shingen, in a surprise attack. Gripping his sword above his head with both hands, he leans forward in the saddle with an angry grimace, biting his lower lip as his robes stream out behind him. At lower right, Shingen's retainers thrusts spears at the horseman as his mount trample over a wooden shield and scattered weapons. The battle rages fiercely all around them with figures silhouetted in black against the night sky, and weapons flying through the air. A bold design illustrating the famous 16th century war between Kai and Echigo provinces.
