More about this print:General Minamoto no Yoshimitsu (1056-1127), aka Shinra Saburo, was an accomplished performer on the sho, a short bamboo mouth organ. He is said to have convinced Toyowara Tokiaki, the son of his deceased sho master, to follow in his fathers footsteps. Both men are often depicted sitting opposite, playing a sho duet. In this design Yoshitoshi focusses on Yoshimitsu, rather than repeating the full picture of both men.
Pictures: Pictures are taken outdoor, in the shade, to reflect true colors, without any enhancements of any kind. The last picture is taken indoor, with a light behind the print, to reveal the exact paper grain, holes if any, or other possible flaws.
