Dramatic Triptych from the Sino-Japanese War showing a Japanese officer knocking a Chinese Enemy over a cliff. He stands with his feet firmly spread apart atop a rocky outcropping, his enemy’s pole arm in hand, watching as the Chinese soldier tumbles through the air below. Great gusts of wind sweep across the scene, adding a sense of movement. A full moon glows pale blue at left as grey and white clouds drift past. A second officer can be seen above the cliff top at right, gripping his gun. The officer wears a black uniform decorated with braided trim, a medal hanging from his chest, a single star on his cap. A terrific composition, nicely detailed with soft shading and burnishing in the officer’s uniform.
