The Great Battle of Ichi-no-Tani, 1864 - Great image from the Battle of Ichi-no-Tani of the Taira fortress during the attack by the Minamoto clan. A warrior with one foot on the balcony railing leans forward as he watches the approach of the Minamoto warships, a naginata in his hand. A noblewoman kneeling beside him looks over her shoulder with a worried expression. At lower left, a samurai gestures angrily at the enemies. Pines and blossoming cherry trees frame the scene. Nice expressive figures in a handsomely detailed setting.
