Sato Masakiyo's Conquest of Korea, 1862

Comments - Great image of the general Sato Masakiyo (the real-life Kato Kiyomasa) and his retainers sailing in a warship on their way to invade Korea. At left, Masakiyo stands in the front of the boat, thrusting his fan out as he regards his men with a stern expression. He wears a vest over a fine suit of armor, and a horned helmet, a quiver of arrows at his back and a sword encased in a tiger skin sheath at his side. The armored samurai listen to him attentively, frowning and grimacing. White-capped waves splash against the side of the ornately decorated ship, which features an elegant black lacquer canopy with gold designs. Nicely detailed.
