Original Kuniomi Japanese Woodblock Print
The Meiji Emperor's Victory Procession, 1895
Comments - Interesting scene of the Meiji Emperor and his Commander-in-Chief returning to Tokyo in triumph at the end of the Sino-Japanese War. The street is lined with cheering citizens as the procession of carriages and officers on horseback makes its way under a triumphal arch at Hibiya decorated with Japanese Flags. A fine modern building looms in the distance, surrounded by trees. A handsome triptych of this historic event. Includes burnishing on some of the black jackets.
