A Group of Brave Warriors of the Takeda Clan


Description Exhibitions Provenance Inscription Credit
Description This triptych and its pair, Walters 95.645, illustrate how a 16th-century warrior suited-up before going into battle. The prints are meant to be viewed from right to left- starting with the under-robe at the far right of the group. Beside each warrior is a number (in a yellow circle), his name (in a red cartouche), and the name of the item he is putting on. These warriors were all retainers of the Takeda warlord during the ten-year battle at Kawanakashima (1553-1563). The most famous was Yama-moto Kansuke, known as the "one-eyed general" (no. 6).
