Lingering Snow on Mt. Yoshino, 1836 - Terrific depiction of the samurai Sato Tadanobu battling the warrior monk Yokogawa Kakuhan on Mt. Yoshino. Facing an attack by warrior monks, Minamoto no Yoshitsune's brave retainer Sato Tadanobu disguised himself in his master's armor to allow Yoshitsune to escape. Tadanobu perches atop the rugged trunk of a pine tree, gripping his sword above his head with both hands as he enemy tumbles backwards onto the ground before him, sending up clumps of snow as he falls. A rushing waterfall can be seen at lower right. A great illustration of this famous episode from the life of Yoshitsune.
