Eitaro Ishigaki, K.K.K., 1936

This work portrays the persecution by the Ku Klux Klan, a secret society. The tense scene depicts a man tied behind his back and being persecuted, a K.K.K. a member dressed in white chasing him, and another man holding on to him.

K.K.K. is identical to a work that was included in the first exhibition of the American Congress in 1937 and in the “Chinese and Japanese Artists in New York” exhibition of the same year.
