The Mongol Invasion

Description Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description The Mongols invaded Japan twice, in 1274 and 1281, and twice they were repulsed with the help of a sudden typhoon (a kamikaze or "divine wind"). Kawasaki Jimbei II began to produced large-scale silk tapestries following his visit to France in 1886. This tapestry was based on a full-size oil painting by Morizumo Yugyo (1854-1927).
