Original Yoshitoshi (1839 - 1892) Japanese Woodblock Print
Brave Warriors of the Shimazu Clan, 1877

Comments - Handsome group portrait of brave warriors from the Shimazu clan, who controlled the Satsuma domain, the area which gave the Satsuma Rebellion its name. In the center, a general sits astride a horse, gripping a tasseled command baton as he looks ahead with a fierce expression. A samurai standing next to him holds a furry black standard while another wearing a helmet with a crescent moon rests an iron club against his shoulder. At right, two heroes sit on folding stools, while at left a warrior sis on a wicker chair wearing a Western style military uniform. Wonderful expressive faces and fine detail in the armor, including touches of burnishing.
