  • Sold.

Artist: Kobayashi Kiyochika
Title: Wounded Officer on a Stretcher
Date: 1904

Naval Officer Kawajira Fumio Wounded during the Fierce Naval Battle at Port Arthur. The wounded officer is carried by two medics on a stretcher. Ignoring his wounds that are dramatically dripping blood, he seems to be arguing with a medical officer who is probably urging treatment. The expressions on the two medics seem to paint them as not perhaps the sharpest tacks in the box. Behind them runs a sailor pushing a torpedo on a rail line.

Condition: Excellent impression, color and condition.
Dimensions: ôban triptych
