Kobayashi Toshimitsu: Underwater battle (Sold)

  • Sold.

Artist: Kobayashi Toshimitsu
Title: Underwater battle
Date: 1894

Great Naval Battle Off the Bank of the Yalu River (Oryokko okino daikaissen). Fascinating glimpse of two frogmen fighting with sharp weapons as a third stands and shines a light. Next to them one frogman has expired. We also see a Japanese man in his underclothes stabbing a hapless Chinese man with his sword. They are fighting against the backdrop of a fishing net of sorts, and a sea battle seems to be raging above them.

Condition: Very good impression, color and condition. Some trimming.
