Original Hayakawa Shozan (1850 - 1892) Japanese Woodblock Print
Imperialism in Ancient and Modern Times at a Glance

Comments - Interesting group portrait of Imperial heroes from ancient and modern times. Interestingly, the red text box next to each figure does not contain the person's name, but lists a shrine or palace, such as Higashi-Fushimi Shrine and Arisugawa Palace. Some of the men wear traditional formal attire, while others are dressed in Western fashions or military uniforms. A few samurai wear armor. Nice expressive figures, detailed with burnishing on the black kimono and jackets, and embossing on the white pants at left.

Image Size - 14 1/8" x 29 1/4" + margins as shown
