A Great Battle from the Taiheiki
Active 1850-1870, Japanese

This is a great color woodblock triptych by Japanese artist Utagawa Yoshikazu (active 1850-1870), titled "A Great Battle from the Taiheiki". The sight size is 14 1/8 x 29 inches, frame size 21 1/4 x 35 1/4 inches, c. 1860s, artist signature, with all appropriate stamps and seals. This epic battle scene is from the Taiheiki, a Japanese historical epic set in the 14th century which tells the stories of the warring clans and friction between the emperors and the shogun warriors. Another impression of this image is included in the collection of the Museum of Fine Art, Boston.

Painting

Travelers on a Country Road

This is a very fine original 19th Century painting in the style of Marinus Adrianus Koekkoek (1807-1868). Oil on panel, 7 1/4 x 8 7/8 inches, c. 1850, unsigned, in an ornate period gilt frame. Although this painting is unsigned, the style and subject are very reminiscent of the work of Dutch artist Marinus Adrianus Koekkoek, who was known for his delicately painted atmospheric landscapes.
