Original Toshihide (1863 - 1925) Japanese Woodblock Print
General Minamoto no Yoshiie on Horseback, 1890

Comments - Handsome triptych showing the famous archer, General Minamoto no Hachiman Taro Yoshiie, on horseback near the Nakoso barrier. He composed a famous poem at the site, which reads "I thought this gusty barrier was a mere name, but why do the wild cherry blossoms so cover the path?" He sits proudly astride his dappled horse, wearing full armor over his blue robes, a quiver of arrows at his back. Two attendants accompany him, one carrying his bow and the other holding a naginata. A large cherry tree blossoms overhead, inspiring his verse. Beautifully drawn with fine detail and touches of burnishing.
