It was very crowded and it was a crowded Buri to wait for five or ten minutes to buy a ticket, and to see it in a row. It is so crowded that I have never seen this museum so crowded.

This exhibition is a theme of “navel bends”, and it is the content that the work of individuality which opens a unique world without pursuing the accents and beauty of the picture from the Edo period to the present age is lined up. There is a work of the painter who is skillful in the picture originally such as Ito Jakuchu and Nagasawa Ashiyuki, but it is only an expression which does not go easily with a simple, strange, and eerie. Since the exhibition consisted of 4 chapters, I would like to introduce the works that I liked in each chapter.

Chapter 1: Guide to the other World Zen painting >
The first is the corner of the Zen painting. Zen paintings were the ones that practiced and spread the Zen teachings, so there were a lot of bold works that were not in the traditional art of painting.

37Beomeo-SA sen Sengai, “Zen Master-yama finding”
This is a folding screen of six songs, finding with a cold mountain and a broom with a scroll on the right ship, the left ship is drawn a Zen master that rode the tiger, there is also a figure of three child tiger beside it. It seems to be a touch like the cartoon by the early drawing in general, and seem coarse. ○ The Tiger’s eyes just hit the point in the middle of anything between the cute W 3 places (one small is another one) there is a rave about, according to the commentary “I can not draw well because the tailoring of the folding screen is bad” “I was able to draw well because I met the Fengshi in a previous life” There is a way to draw in the picture of the world, but it is not in my picture. ” Did you draw well? The expression which feels a little madness of the cold mountain finding even if it looks rough by the early drawing and it seems that this is also a Zen question and it seems that the feature has come out well.

There was a work which drew the sack of three width pair of the snow village circumference in this side.

10Kano Yamayuki “Pine Blossoms and Owl”
This is a picture of an owl perched on a branch of a right-angled pine tree, and two small birds near it stare at the owl. The owl looks a little different like a gorilla. According to the W commentary, “The Owl is a bad voice and has been isolated in the bird, but if you change the view why the owl is evil. It is the one without the impression of the person etc. “and it is written in the praise. It is simple and lovely, but it was the work that the meaning was neatly put.

There was a work of Shirin Kei Crane in this area, too.

23Kei Gong, Saisei “mechanism arm”
This is a work depicting the huike to cut off his hand and show the resolution because it is disregarded even if it went to the apprentice to Daruma. I’m trying to cut down right now with the sword, but it has become a pretty loose atmosphere, the expression is also a sad and miserable w I thought the gap was funny to be a scene of tense.

27Kaze-no-Mototaka “Minami Izumi Zan Cat”
This is a work depicting a Zen anecdote called “Minami Izumi Zan Neko”. Do Zen monks have the right to become a Buddha like a cat or a person? It was said, and the South Zen Osho “say the correct answer which is not debatable. Otherwise, I said, “Kill the Cat,” but no one was able to answer the story sadly the cat was cut off. In this picture, there is a figure of a cat which was cut in half by the side of the Osho, and looks poor in contrast with the forgiven of the picture…. It is a terrible story even if it is asked how many times though the cat was saved by being answered if there was an absent disciple at this time.

41 42Nagasawa Ashiyuki [Inuko figure] Maruyama Ohyama “Shigure Inuko”
This was the purpose of comparing two points of pupil. Both of them depict the puppy’s flock, and the teacher’s fair is graphically drawing the dog’s fur in a fuller and more realistic manner. There was a difference that the Ashiyuki of one disciple represented the body by a smooth curve a little deformed feeling. Both of them are pretty, but it was a great way to show that the expressions were a little different between the teacher and The Apprentice.

2. Beyond something >
The following is a corner focusing on theories and artistic ideas. The work which was different from the person and was back to the authority was lined up.

45Ikcha Kobayashi “corrupt world and self-praise of suffering”
This is a self-portrait that sits a little backwards, and the praise is attached. It is a simple style like writing a few strokes, but you can see that you have a little troubled face. In the legend, “the corrupt world of suffering and Sakura is Saki” and it seems to be, it might be worrying about the cherry blossoms scattered. It seemed to be interesting because it matched the condition that the cherry blossoms had just fallen on this day.

Haiga and South paintings were lined up around here. The world of non-finesse from the worldly beauty spreads.

59Mugwort-Hei Satake “Sansui map”
This is a landscape map of the feeling of the South painting, and the appearance that the house of the mountain and the foot, and two people who are speaking outside in the foreground are seen. It is a way of drawing with lots of tenten, but there was an atmosphere like utopia although it is comparatively rough.
Next to this work there was a landscape painting of the fair, and it was a taste that the forgiven was understood well.

66Natsume Soseki “Yanagishita Lvmama”
This is the work of Natsume Soseki’s later years, and the person of the Chinese style which rides the bridge over the Willow tree and the next to the Suma is drawn. I feel like looking up at a tree, I get the impression that the overall calm. Although the trees are dotted with wood leaves in South style, they are quite rustic and have a picturesque taste of children. According to the commentary, I was conscious of the spirit of literati expressing a high education and pure heart in my humble dislike of secular art. Natsume Soseki is familiar with the art, so I guess I was definitely in mind.

67Jakuchu Ito “Fushimi Doll figure”
This is a work depicting the state that the doll of the shaved head with the one like the Basho fan is continuous to seven body vertically. The expression which is expressed by the line and the point seems to be pretty with the same face except the difference of the color of red, green, and blue clothes. The Jakuchu is famous for its transcendence technique, but it was a simple and loose atmosphere in this work. By the way, Jakuchu was lined up this time. Especially, I think that it is attractive that there is a loose picture in the ink wash.

In this vicinity, there was a “useless book of the Load Treasure Wall” of Utagawa Kuniyoshi, too. On purpose, it makes you feel the height of the technology and the Counterbone spirit in the place where I am drawing in a poor graffiti style deliberately.

73Kotaro Mitgishi “Portrait of a Friend”
This is an oil painting, and the man in the suit who sits on the chair is drawn. However, the impression that the balance of the size of the limbs is amusing and Zungri is received. There is a strange taste that the expression is made a pokan. The background was dark and I felt surreal. According to the commentary, I was convinced that this work was influenced by Rousseau W
Next to this, there was a portrait of Henri Rousseau’s “Flumence Biches,” which is owned by the Setagaya Art Museum. Rousseau was transmitted to the Japan in the Taisho era and it seems to have occurred poor boom. I would have been shocked if a simple picture of Rousseau came and was called the latest art in the place where everyone was trying hard to become good.

Beyond that, there was a corner of the Hetauma cartoon in the 1970s. A part of “bone New Year” of “Passion Penguin Rice” and Hiruko noh yield of Shigezato itoi and Teruhiko Yumura can be read by a copy panel. In the surreal that both can not read the story, there was a sense unknown meaning not hopeless in particular Hiruko is called absurd w penguin Rice I want to read a little because there is charm.

Next, it is a corner of the picture of Lord. There was a picture of the general and the Lord. This place was quite a point W

84Tokugawa Iemitsu “Kiyo diagram”
This photo was taken by a copy of the memorial in the lobby. It is a distinctive modeling that I can see at a glance, but I feel the simplicity like a child’s picture. At this time, it is interesting that the style is completely different though it is a translation that Kano Searchyu etc. served as a back painter. It was a pretty picture such as the place where the feather was carefully drawn and the Zungri.

85Tokugawa Iemitsu “Rabbit figure”
This photo was taken by a copy of the memorial in the lobby. It is a mascot forgiven though it seems that the story of the rabbit of W Feizi like the Rag of the Rabbit (story of the root of the tree which rolled down) is a motif. I have a strict image of the general in the House shines… W

86Tokugawa Iemitsu “Phoenix figure”
This is a picture of the lobby. I imagine that the Phoenix is dignified, but is it a small bird? I have never seen such a cute Phoenix w charm plenty.

88Tokugawa Itsunori “Chicken figure”
This is a work depicting a chicken with a fine black tail. The part of the chicken crown and the throat is red, and the beak is colored yellow. It was also Moe point that it was drawn small in the direction of the bottom of the wall very much loose w lanky eyes which did not lose to Father’s house light by the simplicity like the child drew this, too.

The work of the Lord of the Date clan was also good, the purity of the Lord is great W

Chapter 3 Crazy Modeling >
Next, it is a corner of the work of the art which is different from other. There were a lot of works of various eras and genres here.

104Rei Kishi “Hyakfuku”
This is a big hanging axis, and there are a lot of women of the face like the high fortune in the screen, and there is the appearance of the woman who is doing the thing like the swing play in the washing and making up and the weaving, too. It was a work that the eyes were drawn with gusto though it was a little creepy because the hair is black and it is eerie like the flock of the crow.

108Zenzaburo Kojima “Matsu”
This is a picture of a pine tree consisting of an orange trunk and a yellow-green leaf, and you can take a look at the touch that use the line and paint it with a punch. It was felt rhythmically, and it seemed to be comfortable with the assortment of the color although the leaf of the pine had become an oval for some reason and the deformation progressed. It is a work with a mysterious charm.

101Yoshiaki Nakamura “Twelve months floriculture figure Oshie-folding screen”
This is a folding screen of six songs, and the Flowering of the season is drawn in one song. Pine, plum, peony, etc. Shape is he’s wearing deformed very, it is a technique to represent the inside by drawing a contour in color. Nakamura Yoshinaka is a painter who has been greatly influenced by the Ririn sect it is also a feature that it is used to or use the “seducer” that takes advantage of bleeding profusely it is well transmitted in this picture. It was a poor and interesting taste.

Chapter 4 Bitterness and play dumb >
At the end, I took up two elements: the bitter taste and the play dumb of beauty and comfort.

110Kishi-Koma “Hanayama finding View” ★ Can be seen here.
This is a work in which the finding with a broom put his hand on the shoulder of the cold mountain with the Ideju, and both of them are grinning and smiling faces. It makes you feel crazy such as the hair with a sharp claw and a sense of volume like a Youkai. The Kishi piece was a strong expression of the painter who was talented only, and it was certainly a work which seemed to be said, “bitterness”.

120Gion well special “beautiful figure”
This is a portrait of a woman painted on a full screen, and the Kanzashi is attached to the lip with a bamboo red. The eyes were very large, and there was a strange reality in the W color which looks like a deep Yui face in the whole, and had become a female image which was not idealized and stylized.

128Soga-Ann “Monkey figure”
This is a monkey like a gibbon with a long, white hand that depicts a monkey hang on in the Ivy. It seems to be a somewhat fearless smile, and I feel human po. The painting itself is very good, but there was certainly a taste of the tobo.

136Mantekgoro “Nitan and Gas Light”
This is a work that the advertisement of “Nintan” was drawn on a dark screen. It is painted quite thick, and the character of Nitan is very eye-pulling. Moreover, there was a light of the gas lamp of the star type around, too and it became a strong sense of color. Why the ads of Nidan? The funny is also a work of charm.

So, it was an exhibition to recognize the enjoyment of the painting with a truly unique personality. It is a genre recognized by Rousseau etc. in the West, and it is surprised whether there were such abundant expressions in Japan from Edo period. Because it has already become a very popular exhibition, the person who is going out from now seems to be better to take a lot of time as much as possible and schedule it by counting the congestion. It is a recommended exhibition this season to enjoy a wide range of layers.
