Minamoto no Yoshitsune at Horikawa Palace by Kunisada (1786 - 1864)

Original Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Print
Minamoto no Yoshitsune at Horikawa Palace

Comments - Dramatic image of Minamoto no Yoshitsune standing on the verandah of the Horikawa palace, where he had sought refuge from his suspicious brother, the Shogun Yoritomo, who viewed him as a rival and planned to kill him. Lifting a blind, the young samurai watches as Tosa-bo Shoshun and his men approach, their banners and red lanterns visible int he distance. Yoshitsune wears an interesting kimono that is split into four panels at the bottom over a gray and white print kimono tucked into yellow green panels. He holds a naginata behind his back, ready to do battle with the troops when they arrive. A terrific design with a bold composition.
