Yoshitoshi Thousand Cranes Umbrella
What better place to spend a rainy day than at the Philadelphia Museum of Art? Make sure you arrive dry and in style. This beautiful umbrella features details from Yoshitoshi' s The Twelfth Century Shogun Minamoto Yoritomo Releasing a Thousand Cranes at the Beach at Yuigahama from the museum's East Asian collection. His vivid, dynamic imagery served as inspiration for modern-day manga and anime.
Yoshitoshi was born in the city of Edo (Tokyo) shortly before Japan's violent transformations from a medieval to a modern society. He was keenly interested in preserving traditional Japanese culture against the incursions of modernism, and his prints celebrate the glory of Japan in its mythology, literature, history, the warrior culture, and fine woodblock print tradition.
Our umbrella is a museum exclusive, and features an auto open and close button, and a matching slipcase.
