Japanese Woodblock Prints

Watanabe Nobukazu.JPG

These are Japanese woodblock prints from the late 19th century. Most are from the Sino-Japanese war, and a few from families and other artists in that same time. The majority of these prints were used as war reports and propaganda to keep the public  informed about the current status of the battles, as well as to build patriotism, support, and optimism.
