A large Oni (ogre) grabbing at a samurai on the horseback. Circa 17th Century. Signed Eishin and sealed. Kano Yasunobu (Eishin) (1613-1685) was a brother of Kano Tan'yu and Kano Naonobu. He was selected to succeed as head of the Kano school. In 1630 Yasunobu moved to Edo, where he served as court painter at the Tokugawa shogunal court. He was granted a residence in the Nakabashi district of Edo, where he founded the Nakabashi Kano School, which was one of the four highest-ranking Kano studios.

The painting is in good condition.
