Group Portrait of Samurai and Monks, 1864 - Interesting portrait of a group of samurai and monks accompanied by a banzuke or list across the top. At bottom center, a samurai wearing a straw raincoat and a straw apron looks up with a frown as he lifts his hat above his head. At the bottom of the right panel, an elderly warrior with long gray hair leans forward aggressively while a ninja dressed in black stands behind him. Several komuso or wandering monks with deep basket hats are included. Nice expressive figures, finely detailed.
