Inviting Close Relatives to Sunomata Castle, 1883 - Handsome scene of Hideyoshi meeting with his family in Sunomata Castle, which he received as a gift from Oda Nobunaga. He sits at left, leaning forward with a slightly dazed expression as his family eagerly congratulates him. He wears a purple kimono with the paulownia family crest on his sleeve and shoulders, the same design that appears on the robes of his elderly mother and young man in green, his half-brother Toyotomi Hidenaga. The young beauty is his sister, and the man in blue is Kaji Takumi Gorosuke, a relative of Hideyoshi's wife. The room beyond the figures opens onto a porch overlooking the countryside, with a flock of birds flying overhead. Nice detail in the hairstyles and expressive faces.
