Nippon Banzi, Hyakusen Hyakusyo
Color woodblock print on paper. Weeping woman and kneeling man. Title is a pun on words. Written with different characters it could mean 100 battles, 100 victories. Miho says "Nippon means Japan and banzai means cheers. It's an ambigiouos expression....Hyakusen Hyakusho means a hundred funny stories selected from hundreds of them."
Bequest of Maxwell Sommerville, 1904
