Confrontation at a Minamoto Encampment, 1894

Comments - Handsome kabuki triptych of a confrontation taking place at a Minamoto encampment. The young nobleman in the center listens gravely, his lips tightly pursed. He wears an elegant robe over his armor, the paulownia mon or crest of the Minamoto Clan emblazoned on his chest plate, a tasseled command baton in hand. The fellow at left leans forward anxiously, while at right a warrior tries to intervene, holding his gloved hand out in a stopping gesture. A bald samurai with a mustache and beard watches soberly from the left. Mt. Fuji rises majestically in the background against the dark evening sky, with rows of banners and standards fluttering in the wind. An interesting scene with lively color and fine detail in the faces and hairstyles.
