A vivid six panel Edo screen depicting riders at the second Battle of Uji bridge from the Heike Monogatari signed Fujiwara Hisanobu; the signature followed by a stamp reading Eisen . The first horse plunges into the frothing current, while the rider in the rear bites his bowstring in frustration urging his stead on. The bones of the destroyed bridge visible through gold clouds in the background set the stage. The scene is performed on paper with a scattering of gold and silver flake, growing in size around the gold clouds. Very well written, the figures are bold and dramatic with excellent color retention. The screen has been fully restored and is in excellent condition. The Raucous scene of heroic mayhem is bordered in dark blue patterned brocade separated from the gold canvas by a thin pale blue strip and features a black lacquered wooden frame. It is 69 inches by roughly 12 feet 2 inches (175 x 372 cm) and in overall excellent condition.
