Subject:A strange tale...
Posted By: Andrea Tue, Mar 07, 2023 IP:

Good morning,
in this painting (of which I don't know the author) a samurai is represented (with a large beard and a long sword) who seems to lie in wait, while he hasn't noticed that behind him there is a beast (a gorilla? ). Can anyone tell me which tale or story inspired this representation? Does anyone know the author of the painting? Many thanks in advance for any suggestion.
Best regards

I found this image on the net (Higuchi Jiro Kanemitsu Fighting Giant Monkey) which could be related to the story of the painting. Does anyone know anything about it? | Associations | Articles | Exhibitions | Galleries |
