Attack on Jinzhou Fortress, 1894 by Ginko (active 1874 - 1897)

Original Ginko (active 1874 - 1897) Japanese Woodblock Print
Attack on Jinzhou Fortress, 1894

Senso-e Masterwork Exhibition - We are starting the year with a fantastic collection of Meiji senso-e prints. We’ve acquired an extensive collection with some of the most famous and sought after designs in the genre. We’ve selected a group of the best designs to kick off this auction exhibition. Don’t miss out!

Senso-e - Senso-e are prints depicting wars, most often the Sino-Japanese War of 1894 - 1895 and the Russo-Japanese War in 1904 - 1905. Primarily triptychs, these images filled the journalistic need for illustrations of current activities on the battle front, but also acted as propaganda, encouraging support for the wars and fostering patriotism. These prints emphasized the bravery and success of the army and navy, using dramatic designs and bold compositions, with customers eagerly purchasing the latest prints. Some famous Meiji era artists did senso-e, including Kiyochika, Chikanobu, and Gekko. By the time the Russo-Japanese War came around, woodblock prints had fallen out of favor due to competition with photography and lithography, so fewer designs exist from this time period as compared to the Sino-Japanese War.
