Japanese Representatives Meet with a Chinese Peace Mission, 1895 - Interesting depiction of Japanese and Chinese representatives meeting to negotiate a peace ending the Sino-Japanese War. Wearing uniforms, Ito Hirobumi (center) and Mutsu Munemitsu (right) represented Japan. The Chinese ministers Li Hongzhang and Li Jingfang are seated at left. The man in the black suit in the center is likely John Foster, former American Secretary of State, who advised China during the negotiations, which ended with the signing of the Treaty of Shimonoseki in 1895. A rare design by Tsuchiya Koitsu, who is best known for his shin-hanga landscapes. The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, has this image in its collection. Nicely detailed, with burnishing on the black shadowed areas on the suits and uniforms.
