Nogi Maresuke

Nogi Maresuke (25 December 1849 – 13 September 1912) was a Japanese general in the Imperial Japanese Army and a governor-general of Taiwan. His career included action in the Satsuma Rebellion and the First Sino-Japanese War. He was recalled to active service in the Russo-Japanese War, and at the end of the war, made a report directly to Emperor Meiji during a Gozen Kaigi. When explaining battles of the Siege of Port Arthur in detail, he broke down and wept, apologizing for the 56,000 lives lost in that campaign and asking to be allowed to kill himself in atonement. Emperor Meiji told him that suicide was unacceptable, as all responsibility for the war was due to imperial orders, and that Nogi must remain alive, at least as long as he himself lived. The emperor died in 1912, and Nogi and his wife Shizuko committed suicide shortly after the funeral cortège left the palace.

The Lady's Death

The Lady's Death is the final painting of a series of six by English painter and pictorial satirist William Hogarth, created around 1743. The set is called Marriage A-la-Mode and depicts an arranged marriage and its disastrous consequences. The pictures are exhibited in the National Gallery, London.

In this picture, the countess poisons herself in her grief and poverty-stricken widowhood, after her lover is hanged at Tyburn for murdering her husband. An old woman carrying her baby allows the child to give her a kiss, but the mark on the child's cheek and the caliper on her leg suggest that disease has been passed on to the next generation. The countess's father, whose miserly lifestyle is evident in the bare house, removes the wedding ring from her finger.
