Featured Prints : "47 Ronin" has been one of the best known samurai stories inside and outside of Japan. The vendetta story was based on the historical Ako Incident in 1701 - 03, in which the 47 master-less samurai, "ronin", avenged the unjust death of their lord of Ako domain in the western Honshu. "Kanadehon Chushingura" was the theatrical version of it. The vendetta story was heralded as the epitome of the samurai code of honor and loyalty, and became the Japan's national legend. The numerous art works and spin-off stories have been made about the revenge and loyalty of the 47 Ronin.
We offer several woodblock prints from the highly coveted "Gishi Taikan", The Fourty-seven Ronin Memorial Series. Some of the designs do not appear to be related to 47 Ronin, but they are. Subtle but interesting interpretations of the tale of 47 Ronin. Many of the artists in this series were very famous Japanese painters in the Taisho era (1912 - 1925).
