A color lithograph patriotic fan sample print, likely created between 1939 and 1941 during the Second Sino-Japanese War (1937-1945)*, depicting a young woman waving a small Japanese flag while two soldiers, in an imagined scene, ply the waters on a mission in China. The first two stanzas of the 1939 song, "Patriotic Girl" (愛国娘), lyrics by Satō Sōnosuke 佐藤惣之助 (1890-1942) with music composed by Tetsuo Suzuki 鈴木正次 (1903-1977), under the penname Wada Jūrō 和田十郎, are printed on the fan. Perhaps one of the soldiers is her "big brother" as in the song's lyrics below?
See IHL. Cat. #2670 for another fan print sample bearing the song "Patriotic Girl."
