He was considered a master at making ukiyo-e woodblock prints and paintings. He was especially regarded for his depiction of graceful women and also his bijin okubi-e. The latter were pictures of beautiful women that he drew with large heads. He lived 1754-1806. Here the courtesan Midorigi promenades under a flowering sakura (cherry tree) with her two kamuro (young girls who would become courtesans) and two shinzo (girls who had just become courtesans). Four shinzo are mentioned at top corner in inscription. The two kamuro and Midorigi wear the same kimono, decorated with herons. The two shinzo wear the same kimono. The three elder courtesans have the mark of the green house (green flower) on their shoulders and sleeves.     © Newagen Archive / The Image Works

GENTLEMEN! MAKE YOUR GAME WHILE THE BALL IS ROLLING. 22 February 1848. A provisional Government was formed, but the majority of the Deputies soon resolved upon the proclamation of a French Republic. This was opposed in some quarters, but on the 25th there was a Revolution in the streets of Paris, and on the 26th the Republic was officially proclaimed, and on the 27th inaugurated at the base of the Column of July. Thus was accomplished the French Revolution of 1848. This was called “ the year of Revolutions.” All the crowned heads of Europe felt more or less the influence of revolutionary doctrines in their dominions.  In Berlin, Munich, Milan, Modena, Kiel, and other places on the Continent, there were violent revolutionary outbreaks, which made the crowned heads of Europe tremble for their future.  ©TopFoto/ The Image Works

St. Frumentius bishop of Ethiopia (fourth century), feast on October 27 and 20 July. Roman citizen originally from Tyre in Lebanon, he was taken prisoner by the Ethiopians together with his brother, with whom he was returning from a trip. The king of Ethiopia gave them the duties at court, and at his death his widow left them free, but asked to remain Frumentius to help his son Ezana yet a boy in the regency. Frumenzio increased the Christian community that was so far mainly made up of Roman merchants, bringing the faith even to Ethiopians; Patriarch of Alexandria Athanasius consecrated him bishop of Axum: St. Frumentius is considered the founder of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church.

The fall and death of Ahmed Gran (1528-1540), shot by a Portuguese musketeer. Ahmed Gran was probably the fiercest Muslim warrior to battle the Christians in Ethiopia. He was a 16th century warrior whose powers were said to be miraculous. He was impervious to bullets, and his huge sword could severe a tree. He was killed by a combined Portuguese-Ethiopian army. Wooden panel painted at the beginning of this century by Kegneketa Jemlieri Hailu of Gondar.
