Abstract:
The brief battle of Asan ended with a Japanese victory, with 500 Chinese and 82 Japanese casualties. The Chinese army was retreating to Pyongyang, their last stand in Korea. This print depicts a Japanese camp in the vicinity of Seoul, where casks of sake are stacked, gifts of Japanese people and companies for their victory. Watanabe Nobukazu excelled in depicting battles of The Sino-Japanese war and The Russo-Japanese war that occurred ten years later.
