A Falconer by Utagawa Kunisada (1823-1880).

Comments from Dr Keiya Nakajima:

The picture shows famous Shogun (Minamoto no Yoritomo, upper person) and his retainer (Goromaru Shigemune) at the end of 12th century in Japan. Shogun is the head of warrior class (Samurai) as ruler in feudal times. Their names are written on the right of persons. It is an imaginary picture of the scene that strong retainer (not falconer) stands by at the side of master with Goshawk in the hunting field.
