A Picture of the Battle with the Rebels at Kawajiri and Takahashi in Kagoshima Prefecture, circa 1877 - Terrific Yoshitoshi triptych of rebels attacking at Kawajiri and Takahashi in Kagoshima during the Satsuma Rebellion. A general in a black uniform directs his troops from astride his horse at right, gesturing with his sword, his hair tied back with a white sash. Other warriors rush forward on foot and horseback, holding spears and swords, one carrying a gun. Flames and smoke billow from the left, lighting up the dark night sky. A lively scene full of energy and action, with wonderful expressive figures. A great Yoshitoshi design.
