Tanmeijiro Genshogo, the Short-lived Second Son - Dramatic scene of an underwater fight between the tattooed Tanmeijiro Genshogo (Ruan Xiaowu in Chinese) and an enemy. The fully armored foe struggles to free himself from the grip of his opponent. The pair plunges downward into the water, a pair of fish swimming by. A terrific woodblock with a dynamic composition. Shading adds a real feeling of movement to the water. An excellent reprint choice for collectors interested in the samurai tradition.
This reprint - This terrific reprint is beautifully printed with excellent color and detail, in pristine condition. We rarely see this design in reprint, so don't miss this opportunity to acquire a classic Kuniyoshi warrior from his great "Suikoden" series.
