101012-0006 - Taira no Kiyomori


Outside Showa 1930s Unknown

History print showing Taira no Kiyomori (平清盛, 1118-1181) confronted by a vision of hell and the ghosts of his victims while suffering from a fever.

This print is based on an 1883 (Meiji 16) woodblock print by Japanese artist Tsukioka Yoshitoshi (月岡芳年, 1839-1892).

Taira no Kiyomori was a general of the late Heian Period (794-1185) who established the first samurai-dominated administrative government in Japan. Taira no Kiyomori is the main character in the Tale of Heike (平家物語, Heike Monogatari).

Title: Taira no Kiyomori Yurei ni nayamu.

From Yamato Zakura (國畫史帖大和桜), a jingoistic history textbook for elementary students with prints based on Ukiyo-e masterpieces from the late 19th century, published in 1935 (Showa 10).
