Tokiwa Gozen

Tokiwa Gozen

Tokiwa Gozen was the mistress of Minamoto no Yoshitomo and the mother of the hero Yoshitsune (1159-1189). She is famous for remaining loyal to her husband's memory and is often depicted fleeing with her children through the snow after Yoshitomo's defeat. The design is from a series called Meiyo hakko no uchi, "Eight Honorable Ways of Conduct," where Tokiwa Gozen represents "obedience." Yoshitoshi's relations with women were difficult and his depictions of modern women were careless and vulgar, but in his prints of women from history he was able to distance himself and draw with care and sensitivity. | Located in: Private Collection, USA.
