Peace Negotiations at Kawanakajima in Shinano Province, 1844 - 1847 - Handsome scene from the Second Battle of Kawanakajima between the forces of Takeda Shingen and Uesugi Kenshin along the banks of the Sai River. After a month of skirmishes with no real winner, the two rivals confronted each other across the river to discuss terms for peace. In the center, Uesugi Kenshin sits on a folding stool along the shore under a great fringed standard topped with a paulownia blossom. A samurai holds the reins of a black horse behind him. Below, his retainers are massed along the shore in full armor, with weapons and shields ready for combat if needed. An interesting depiction of this historic battle.
