6-Panel Screen of the Heike Monogotari

The theme of this very rare screen traces the history of the great battle of Yashima, in the 12th century, between the Taira and Minamoto clans. More precisely this is a naval battle, the Battle of Yashima, where the Taira clan had retreated to an island off Shikoku on the Inland Sea. The Minamoto were victorious but a large part of the Taira fleet managed to escape and were when defeated a month later.
Magnificent screen with a great finesse of description of the characters, the movements of troops and perfectly reproduces this warlike atmosphere.
Edo period early 18th century.
