DEPICTIONS OF ANIMALS IN THE SATIRICAL WAR PRINTS OF KOBAYASHI KIYOCHIKA
This paper presents some selected images of animals in the satire of the two most important military conflicts that Japan experienced in the Meiji period: the Sino-Japanese and the Russo-Japanese wars. The examples come from the oeuvre of Kobayashi Kiyochika – considered by some to be “the last important ukiyo-e master and the first noteworthy print artist of modern Japan”.
