About the object

Artist: Utagawa Kuniyoshi (1797-1861) Series: Sixty-nine Stations of Kisokaido Road (Kisokaido Rokuju-kyu Tsugi no Uchi) Title: 24. Shionada – Torii Matasuke Publisher: Minatoya Shobei Published: 1852 Dimensions: 36.1 x 24.5 cm Torii Matasuke is a loyal retainer of Lord Yasuda of Taga, but he is tricked by the evil Mochizuki Genzo (based on the real-life villain Otsuki Denzo). In a rainstorm, the lord is crossing the Chikuma River on horseback when Matasuke, swimming underwater, surprises him and cuts off his head. Clutching his gory trophy in his teeth, Matasuke wrings out his soaked clothing as the lord’s retainers dash about in confusion on the far shore. Only too late does he learn that he has killed the wrong person, not the villain he thought he was attacking but his own lord.
