Woodblock Print of Two Warrior
This is an woodblock print (ukiyo-e) nicely framed of two warriors along the ocean shore. The scene depicted in the print is that of the death of Taira no Atsumori (reddish-orange armor) at the hands of Kumagai no Jirō Naozane (blueish armor) in single combat during the Genpei War at the end of the Heian Period (794-1185 CE).
The wood block print measures 24.1 cm (9.5 inches) wide by 27.2 cm (10.7 inches) long. The frame itself measures 38.1 cm (15 inches) wide by 43.2 cm (17 inches) long. Overall the condition of the woodblock print is very good for its age. There is some age associated foxing of the paper in a few places but no major damage or conditions issues to report. The natural colors are still very vivid in the print. I would estimate the woodblock print dates from the Shōwa Period after 1940 CE. The print is signed and stamped by the artist the 3rd Hasegawa Sadanobu.
