Sasaki Takatsuna Recovering His Stolen Horse, 1887

Comments - Handsome triptych depicting the famous warrior Sasaki Takatsuna recovering his horse that had previously been stolen. He leads the animal away by the bridle as the thief comes running after him. Takatsuna stares back over his shoulder with a stern frown, ready to draw his sword. He wears a patterned blue kimono tucked into brown hakama pants, a straw hat hanging at his back. Trees overhang the river at right, which winds back through the landscape with mountains in the distance against a gray evening sky. Wonderful detail and soft bokashi shading in this interesting subject.
