Comments - Dramatic scene from the story "The Igagoe Revenge," also known as "Kazuma's Revenge." The hero, Shizuma, enlists the help of the swordsman Masayemon to avenge his father's death, waiting to attack the murderer Matagoro as he travels. Here, a samurai thrusts a spear at a warrior who has fallen backwards to the ground. His intended victim blocks the blow with his sword as he scrambles out of the way. At center left, a wooden bridge arches over a river, with a frightened man running away on the opposite shore. Tall tree trunks frame a view of a rustic home with a thatched roof, and the walls of a castle can be seen at upper left. A nicely detailed image from this famous tale.
