The exhibition took 2 hours and 40 minutes, but there was a lot of sense of volume, and the third chapter of the second half had many attractions.

Chapter 3: Meiji Era >
[1. Meiji Government and Art (2) crafts for export]
It is the Meiji period from here. Although trade with foreign countries began with an unequal treaty, such as the Japan-U. S. trade treaty and the United States, it seems to have become a major export goods with goods such as raw silk and tea. The Meiji government seemed to have encouraged it, and as a saucer of the painter and the craftsman who had received the order to the daimyo until then, the overseas export of art goods became active. The goods for such an export were displayed here.

134Lighting Bureau
The desk is made of parquet. The parquet is a mosaic-patterned guy with a souvenir of Hakone. It is a pretty big desk, but there is a mosaic pattern to detail and is splendid. It was quite elaborate, and it was a design like export goods very much.

109“Ozeki Beauties Shibayama inlay Incense Burner”
Incense burner like a silver round trophy. There are two dragons on both sides of the sphere, an eagle on the top of the ball, and a dragon wrapped in a pedestal. This was also expressed to the scale of the dragon with the elaborate work. A phenomenal work from this side increases W

112“Shibayama Makie Silver Beauties figure vase (pair)”
Anyway, a fine silver-crafted vase with a precision of less than a millimeter. It was a splendid and delicate atmosphere combined with cloisonne etc. The odd W

123Kayama Miyagawa “high relief peony sleeping cat awakening water finger with lid” ★ Can be seen here.
The cat which is posing as if it is rounded and pushes the head is sittin’ on the jar. Hair color is like a sleeping cat in the sunlight, it seems to have been said to wake up in the Meiji Restoration. When the cat was seen closely, it was made firmly to the small nose. Is this also an export product that is in this corner?

132Morimura-gumi (now Noritake company) “Gold coloring picture Landscape tee Set”
What is Old Noritake? A round hexagonal tea cup is on a hexagonal plate. It is a fine gold-crafted, it is a luxurious feeling. A hexagonal teapot is also placed next to it, and the gold work like the polka dot is a race-like and is graceful. It was also tasteful to draw the scenery with a thin purple and green parts of pottery.

[(2) acceptance of Western painting]
This corner was a theme of the painting Art of the changed Japan by the Western painting was brought to the Japan. I wonder if there were some permanent works in this museum.

137Charles Warman “Kaido”
I wonder if this was seen in February this year at the Setagaya Art Museum “British Art of travel sensibility and experience of the Twelve”. This person came to the Japan as a correspondent in the early Meiji era, and was a painter who drew the picture of Japan various places and brought up the painter such as Yoshimatsu five surname and Yuichi Takahashi. This picture is from the front to the right, and the traveler who wears an umbrella is walking on the road of the Matsunami tree. There was a kind of hut on the left and there was a horse. The expression of light and the Shadow was splendid in the feeling that the bustle of the road and post at that time and nature were drawn refreshing.

140Yuichi Takahashi “View from Mt. Atago on the coast of Shinagawa” ★ Can be seen here.
This is a painter who was taught by Charles Warman. I think this work is permanent here. The tile and roof of the town in Yokohama look down from the hill, and the trunk of the tree is drawn large on the right side. There was a commentary that the air perspective and the Grassi (the technique of applying the paint that the upper and lower layers can see through) were seen, but the clouds and light became Western expressions. There was a black smoke across the house, and we were able to look for the presence of the invisible train by the smoke.

144Tadashi Asai “town near Hachioji” ★ Can be seen here.
Asai Tadashi might be familiar because it often sees the work. It is a large brown painting with a whole house on both sides of the road and a mountain towering in the back. The mountains were blurred, shadows falling on the road, dark in the house, and the expression of shadows was an interesting work.

[(3) Teiuro accomplishments and exposition]
Before this, I introduced the Imperial Treasure Exhibition, but the “Teiuro accomplishments” is like the present human national treasure. There was a piece of soul in this exhibition.

155Kano Yoshicliff “Yamamura Shunkei”
It is a hanging axis depicting the state of Yamamura. The tree in the foreground has a dark color and a line, but the back is drawn thinly. Is there a Western technique around here? The strength was also splendid.

169Koukumo Takamura “Gyoran Kannon statue”
It is a statue of Kannon in a soft atmosphere. I had a close look, but I had a merciful expression.

157Akisai Kawabe “White Eagle and Monkey”
Kawabe Gyosai introduced in Chapter 2 of the prequel. This is a white eagle standing imposing on the rock, with a frightened ape under the rock. The rock was strong with a sense of speed, but the hair of the monkey had a fluffy feeling. It seems to have been the collection of Josiah Condor who designed the Mitsubishi Ichigokan and Iwasaki House.

197Two generations Kawashima, health, “The World Exposition of St. Louis”, “Movement planting Ayaginu picture Hydrangea twin Chicken”
In this exhibition, “Hydrangea Twin Chicken” was exhibited in the work which made 15 pieces of the 30 pieces of Jakuchu Ito “Ayaginu art” of Aiji temple in the embroidery panel. From a distance, you can see only a picture. The color is a little thin? I think so much. I marvel at the height of the technology.
“Ayaginu Picture” is currently exhibited at the Royal Treasure Exhibition of Ueno (2009/10/30), and there was also a painting-like fabric, so the people who saw the imperial treasures of the royal family can enjoy this work even more.

173Katsuyoshi Shoami “Hyotei Bee Vase”
It is a vase of the feeling that the bee stops in the gourd. It was sweet in a natural feeling.

186Yasuyuki Namikawa “Cloisonne Ouka chicken Figure vase”
It is a work with a clear transparent black and transparent glaze. The long chicken of the tail is drawn under the cherry blossoms. It is a strange expression that black is transparent, but I really feel it. The work of this person is also in the Imperial Treasure Exhibition (1st period). And many times it would be fun.

[2. Meiji Tokugawa family and art]
There was a photograph and a painting of the Tokugawa Yoshiki who retired here. It is quite good.

201Yoshiyoshi Tokugawa “Mowing The wheat”
The color is painted on the photograph taken by the last general Tokugawa Yoshiki. It was the subject which took a picture of the farmer who was mowing the wheat, and the painting of the Barbizon sect (the famous millet etc. of the wide). There was a painting near this picture, but it was a good arm even though I drew it while receiving guidance.

212Kiyoo Kawamura “Waterfront Sallow”
Working in a Western-style oil painting, River and Reed River (laundry? And women. I think it’s a Japan because I’m wearing a kimono, but it was western in the academic style.

[3. New Art protector, Yokohama Hara Sanxi]
214Yokoyama Taikan “Grass Lushan Sangu map”
It is the hanging axis of the two-pack set depicting the scene of the famous Three Kingdoms of “Rei of Mitsugu”. To the left, who is looking out from the window of the house on the hill (Komei? Was drawn, and the three brothers who rode the horse under the Hill were drawn to the right. In the atmosphere that seems to live in the hermit, unique space expression was impressive.

217Imamura Murasaki “Date Masamune” ★ Can be seen here.
It was a portrait of date Masamune when I thought the warlords who were winking. The big cross is crossed with the back. This seems to be a cross for the crucifixion of gold leaf, trying to dispel suspicion against the distrust from Hideyoshi. I thought it was a pretty calm face.

218Yukari Imamura “Omi Hakkei (Small sketch)” ★ Reference Articles
This is a preliminary sketch of the work I saw in the Tokyo National Museum. It is no longer a finished product? It was workmanship.

215Shimomura Kanzan “spoiling” ★ Can be seen here.
Folding screen. Tadanpei Fujiwara sits in a forest and is reading the Japanese poem while watching the autumnal leaves. Elegance atmosphere was drifting, colorful and vivid.

So, it was a very fulfilling exhibition. I saw it over there! I think that it is collecting the place that much delicious because there were a lot of works. Especially, those who went to the Imperial Treasure Exhibition (1st term) I think that it is interesting to see here.
