Tora Gozen Holding Soga Juro Sukenari's Kimono

Series; The Revenge of the Soga Brothers (Soga Monogatari Zue)

The Revenge of the Soga Brothers - Wonderful image from an unusual historic series by Hiroshige illustrating the famous tale of the Soga Brothers. Based on a true story, the father was murdered in 1175 when the brothers were aged three and five. In 1193, they finally avenged his death, killing his assassin during a hunting party at the foot of Mt. Fuji during a pouring rainstorm. This legendary story of honor and heroism was a favorite during the Edo era, and a subject for countless artists and playwrights.

Beautifully carved and printed, these reprints come from a 1917 edition published by Yoshikawa Kobunkan. Each features a scene from the famous revenge drama along with a descriptive text page. Originals from this series are difficult to find, so these fine Taisho era reprints are offer a nice chance to collect a rare Hiroshige image.
