Taira no Kiyomori trying to stop the sunset. I do not know who is the artist. Any good tip much appreciated! Thank you!

    This print supposedly shows Taira no Kiyomori trying to stop the sunset. I do not know who is the artist. Any good tip much appreciated! Thank you!

    The subject of the print is Taira no Kiyomori (平 清盛). I also believe the print is unsigned. Taira no Kiyomori appears to be identified in the text above the two red seals on the left. Perhaps the seals give a clue to the artist. I think the print is from the Meiji period (1880's). It appears to be from a series entitled Dai Nihon Meishō kurabe (大日本名将競)-- roughly “Famous Generals of Japan”
    Below is a similar print by Yoshitoshi for comparison:
