Tokaido gojusan tsui

Description Provenance Inscription Credit
Description Expecting orders from his warlord Nitta Yoshioki, Yura Hyogo is shown seated inside his military camp near Hodogaya in 1358. The messenger before him brings bad news: Yoshioki is dead, betrayed by a former retainer. The messenger appears to be acting out the final moments when, in a sinking boat and under a barrage of arrows, Yoshioki honorably performed "seppuku" (ritual suicide).
