Tales of Bravery from Great Japan - Terrific design from Mitsukata's series "Tales of Bravery from Great Japan" (Dai Nippon chuyu gidan), which feature portraits of Japanese heroes from the Sino-Japanese War of 1894 - 1895. These lively scenes show soldiers in the midst of fighting, capturing the drama of the battlefield with wonderful detail. Little is known about this artist and series. A nice choice for a military collector or a student of history.
