Takagi Umanosuke And The Ghost Of A Woman PrintPrints
A beautiful reproduction of Takagi Umanosuke and the Ghost of a Woman by Tsukioka Yoshitoshi, from the Ashmolean collection.
The seventeenth-century warrior Takagi Umanosuke was a legendary sword fighter, famous for formulating one of the earliest schools of Japanese martial arts. Here he is shown undergoing a trial of courage in a haunted temple. The subject is related to a triptych by Kuniyoshi published in 1852, in which another warrior tries to frighten Takagi Umanosuke with an inflated ghost-figure in a ruined temple.
Supplied unframed, this 11""x14"" print comes with a backing board and is sealed in a clear cellophane pocket. Fits perfectly into one of our 11""x14"" mini print frames.
