Mori Motonari by Inoue Tankei
Depiction of: The most powerful daimyo of the 16th century Japan, Mori Motonari as a young boy (Shojumaru) a maidservant at the torii at Itsukushima (Miyojima) Shrine.

Period: Meiji - 1889

Size: 13.75 x 9 inches

Condition: Very Good. This series of prints were mounted as an album at one time, and it explains the backing. This is the reason why the colors are still vivid and bright. Although there are creases and fold lines, there is no loss of color, so the lines are not that noticeable. (Matted print)

Description: This series, Instructive Models of Lofty Ambition was published by Matsuki Heikichi starting from 1885 to 1890, and included 52 prints by 7 artists. Each print showed a famous person from Japanese history from the series Foundations of Morality and Success
