EDITORS COMMENTS
The woodblock print titled "Tearful goodbye of the beaten commander, 1894" by Kobayashi Kiyochika captures a poignant moment in history. The image depicts a defeated commander bidding farewell to his troops, evoking a sense of sorrow and loss. Created during the Meiji era in Japan, this artwork showcases Kiyochika's mastery of ink and color on paper. Measuring 36.5x23.8 cm, this print is housed at the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery in the Smithsonian Institution in the USA. Published by Matsuki Heikichi, it is part of the Robert O. Muller Collection from the late 19th century. In this composition, we see an army horse standing beside its beaten commander while a child looks on with tear-filled eyes. A woman and man are also present, their expressions mirroring that of despair and sadness. The use of vibrant colors adds depth to this emotional scene as shades of reds and blues contrast against somber tones. The artist skillfully conveys human emotions through subtle details such as teardrops rolling down faces. This woodblock print transports us back to a significant period in Japanese history when conflicts were prevalent during the Meiji era. It serves as a reminder of both personal sacrifices made by individuals involved in war and collective experiences shared by nations grappling with change. Through its powerful imagery, "Tearful goodbye of the beaten commander" invites viewers to reflect upon themes like resilience, loss, and compassion that transcend time and culture.
