Hisahide Prepares to Kill Himself by Yoshitoshi 1883
Matsunaga Hisahide was the chief minister of shogun Yoshiteru, against whom
he rebelled and whom he forced to commit suicide in 1565. In 1577, at the
age of seventy, the cruel old campaigner was in turn defeated and forced to
kill himself. Here, in fury, he hurls his last sake cup against a pillar.
