Taira no Koremori and Demoness
Date: 1868
Clearing Weather of the Togakushi Mountains. The beautiful princess Sarashina has transformed into the demon Momji, her transformation creating a wind of swirling maple leaves that sends trays of refreshment tumbling. Koremori fearlessly confronts her, drawing his sword. She clutches at her long hair and shrieks at him. Yoshitoshi revisited this scene a number of times, including a vertical diptych and in the “36 Ghosts”.
