Description Exhibitions Provenance Inscription Credit
Description The First Sino-Japanese War (August 1, 1894-April 17, 1895) was fought between China and Japan over control of Korea. The Battle of the Yellow Sea occurred on September 17, 1894, when Japanese warships encountered the larger Chinese northern squadron off Haiang Island. Led by the flagship "Matsushima" (at left), the Japanese fleet sunk the Chinese ship "Laiyüan" (in the foreground) and severely damaged the "Yangwei" (at right) and other ships. Each of the ships in this sequence of prints, which was intended for a popular Japanese audience, is labeled so that viewers could follow the action.
