Tsukioka Yoshitoshi, "Katakura Kojuro Munesada"
Pickup currently unavailable
Katakura Kojuro Munesada was the head of the Japanese Katakura clan in the mid-19th century. In this portrait by Yoshitoshi, Munesada is grandly posed in his samurai armor. The detailing in this woodblock print is intricate, and the lines and perspectives employed by Yoshitoshi to reproduce Munesada's facial features are a departure from the typical stylizing found in woodblock prints of people during this period.
