The Subjugation of the Rebels at Kumamoto, circa 1877

Comments - Dramatic scene from the Satsuma Rebellion of rebel samurai attacking Kumamoto Castle, which was held by the Imperial Army. Soldiers rush through a gate with swords drawn, immediately encountering the rebel forces. At left, a samurai climbs over the fence while flames rise from inside the compound and smoke billows up into the night sky, with additional fires burning in the distance along the horizon. At center left, samurai with an axe and mallet begin to knock through the heavy wooden fence. An intriguing design, also in the collection of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts.
