The painting subject is well-known one.
Kusunoki Masashige (1294-1336), famous Samurai commander, was going to
the Minatogawa War by order of the Godaigo Emperor.
He knew he would lose the war and also his life.
At Sakurai post town, Masashige told his young son Masayuki to go to Kawachi
Province (Masashige's hometown).
Masayuki denied to go there and wanted to accompany with his father.
Masashige admonished his son that he should survive for revenge.
Then, the father and child parted tearfully.
The scene is painted elaborately and artistically.
