Watanabe no Tsuna [渡邉綱] about to cut off the
arm of the demon Ibaraki at Rashomon Gate

Identifier: 1770-90c Shunsho pins 555

There is a curious element to this print. The sign board has the characters 金札 (kinsatsu) on it. 札 can be translated as 'placard'. However, there are two copies of vertical diptychs by Yoshitoshi in Lyon Collection, #s 1351 and 1380, which show the same sign board, but with different characters on them - 禁札.


Formerly attributed to Koryūsai and Kiyomasu.

Illustrated in Pins on page 221, image number 555.
