Description

Part of a triptych (center). A print depicting The Battle of Ichinotani (寿永三年一ノ谷合戦) in 1184. This was a Taira defensive position at Suma during the Genpei War (1180–1185), a national civil war between the Taira and Minamoto clans during the late-Heian period of Japan. The Taira suffered a crucial defeat to the forces of Yoshitsune and Noriyori. The death of Taira no Atsumori at the hand of Kumagai no Naozane is a particularly famous passage in Tales of the Heike (Heike Monogatari).
Signed Ichimōsai Yoshitora ga (一猛斎芳虎画) in the bottom left. Signature on each sheet. Censors' seals: Mera (米良), Murata (村田) (Mera is upside down on right panel). No blockcutter's mark.
