The latter part is a place to worry about which I should introduce only the works that I liked, but I introduce mainly what I felt particularly interesting.

Chapter 2: The Modern palace decoration and the imperial accomplishments staff >
Chapter 2 was exhibited the works of “Teiuro accomplishments” after the Meiji period. This “Teiuro accomplishments” was enacted for the purpose of protecting and promoting the creation of artists and craftsmen who lost the back of the shogunate and feudal lords in the present human national treasure. In the Japan at that time, art was also a major export, so this movement seemed to suit national policy. The foreign people at that time were surprised at a lot of works like pouring the whole body and soul exactly?

Araki Hiroshi and Noguchi Koshen “Asahi Sangyo Kaisha twin Crane Matsutakeume”
It is a portrait of a three-piece set, with pine and plum blossoms, two cranes and Asahi Sangyo Kaisha, bamboo and mushrooms from the left. In the middle is Araki Kan-po, the two sides are like Noguchi Koshen (Noguchi good sells) work. The crane in the middle has a graphic and graceful impression (it is a good picture that was paralyzed slightly because it was after watching the crane of the Jakuchu W) both sides of the pine is stretched powerfully in line with the top, there was also a refreshing impression coupled with vivid green. It was interesting that the motif was also three-eyed.

Yuki Sugitani, Woodcutter
The folding screen that white snow covers on the whole. A mansion is drawn on the right ship, and the left ship has a garden with a brook and a bridge and a snow Plum branch and a fan are depicted. The moon was drawn in the sky and the trees were covered with snow. The expression that the snow and the boundary are vague that the mansion and the scenery disappear in the snow was fantastic and beautiful.

Momaho Hirfuku “Tama Kashiwa” ★ Can be seen in the “introduction of the work” here.
Gold bullion’s a folding screen. On the right, the rugged of the Kashiwa tree and the green leaves are boldly drawn, and a pair of doves are drawn on the branches. It seems that this pigeon expresses the appearance of Emperor Meiji and Empress Kaori. On the left is a bamboo grove and uphill that grows in the rocky rock. This bamboo is also full of vitality, and I receive a refreshing impression from a vivid green. The Greens were very impressive.

Takatori Wakari “Akasaka Rikyu Gyoen”
This is a folding screen, too. On the right, there is a blue pond and pine and hills around it, which is an elegant atmosphere. The left ships are painted in orange-ish trees and creeks, and they are a glossy color coupled with gold bullion. It was a folding screen that was wrapped in the gentle, elegant air of the Yamato picture, and soothing the thing to watch.

Yokoyama Taikan “Chaoyang Reifeng” ★ Can be seen here.
This picture was a little goose-up. W on the right is a full moon and cloud on top of the Black Mountains, connected to the right ship. On the right, you will see Mt. Fuji, a gold-colored cloud that heads out of the ocean. Luckily, I was able to watch people’s rift when they were able to, so I looked away, but when I went away, I felt more majestic, godliness, and had the power to be in my heart. I think it’s a masterpiece of great work.

Yokoyama Taikan “Gyoen vermicelli”
This is also a great view, but this is a unseen atmosphere, and I draw the lake and the surrounding mountains and the trees only with the shade of sumi in gold bullion. The expression that seemed to be hazy in the spring rain of the title was splendid. It was a work filled with quietness that only the sound of the rain seemed to hear.

Takamura Mitsukumo, Yamazaki Asumo, “Manage Raku figurine” (Casting: Nogami Ryuki Makie, Raden: Yukio Yuki)
“Manaku-Raku” is a dance danced by four people in the case of the emperor’s coronation, and this is the one that made it a sculpture. An elaborate and graceful dance person stands on the splendid Raden Makie. It is made of a hard bronze, but the texture of the clothes which flutes like a cloak seemed to be really smooth like clothes. I was very interested in Makie art, so there were a lot of things to highlight.

Dalian Ceramics Co., Ltd. “Kikiri Phoenix Bunbun Glass Vase”
It is a vase of a large crystal glass that was presented from the South Manchuria Railway (AKA: Mitsutetsu). It is a masterpiece in the modern glass art of Japan. There are two vases, both of which are carved by the Phoenix (maybe a male). Both were drawn fairly finely. The craft of the Teiuro accomplishments is odd… It was from this work that I began to think so heartily W

Kawabata Tamaki “group Monkey Figure”
A lot of monkeys are gathered in the Rocky Mountain with strong strength. Hanging on a tree stretching from a rocky mountain, or a child monkey? There are also monkeys posing as if they were holding or dancing. If you watch a lot, the fluffy feeling of one monkey’s hair is great! The expression that I can see when I feel the thinness of the hair is a marvel. The structure of the cliff drawing the diagonal of the right rise and the tree which extends to the diagonal of the left rise was interesting.

Yasushi Ikeda “Yamaji Chrysanthemum Makie Abyss, Ryōshi box, this is”
Gilded’s Makie!! And, the tension goes up when the treasure odor is w this is, Ryōshi box, in the set of Abyss, it seems to be the motif of the poem “I will take a thousand years to go by the time of the soup of the chrysanthemum of the wet Shan Yamaji” of all ages Waka Shu. When seeing, it is said that the character “it is this is” is seen in the Ryōshi box “It is wet and it is” and “it is in the abyss” in the letter according to the commentary. … I want to see again if possible w I missed.

Mitsuaki Ishikawa “Ancient Falconry”
I think it is an ivory, but it is a hawk of falconry and Taka. It can be easily imagined that it is carved in a very delicate, realistic, and poured cardiovascular not extraordinary though it is a word when writing by the character. The hawk that stopped on the arm of the falconer stooped down, and it was likely to take off now, and the expression of the falconer seemed to overlook the round. I thought that the milky-white material was graceful, and the smooth texture increased the style of this work.

Mitsukumo Takamura “Chabo figurine”
A pair of chickens? It is a wooden image of two chickens. It looks like a real cute face. Especially, the male tail was splendid. It looked like the grain was still there.

Yasuyuki Namikawa “Shippo Shiki Beauties Figure vase”
“Black transparent glaze” on a black background, a vase of cloisonne painted with cherry blossoms on the opposite side of a vivid green maple. This “black transparent glaze” was awesome even if you look at the untrained eye! As the name suggests, or say black with a sense of clarity, or say a vivid black w indeed glossy black, I had to complement the cherry blossoms and maple painted on it. It is a work that I liked considerably in this exhibition.

Asahi Ngoc Son “official woman figurine”
It is a carved fang that carved a woman as well as a falconer earlier. It is quite amazing! It seems to combine a number of parts, but did not know where to join. And, the expression was wonderful, and the folds of clothes which piled up several layers were expressed finely, and I felt the softness because of the texture. The accomplishments of the Teiuro is really frightening.

Kawabe overnight Other “chrysanthemum Makie raden Shelf” ★ Can be seen here.
I think that it is good to say that it is a work of the whole body and soul by the imperial accomplishments members in the shelf made of Makie Raden. It was made from Emperor Meiji, and it took twelve years to complete. The nit of each field is lined up, and a fine gold work and the Raden are given everywhere, and there is no chance in the back of the shelf and the stand. At that time, it was called “three major production of the Meiji Era”, and the yell was not unusual. It was a must-see point.

Katsuhiro Kagawa Other “Hana Karakusa Dagger Koshirae (dagger” koshirae) ★ Can be seen in the “introduction of the work” here.
There was a sword next to this work, and it seems to be one of “three major productions of the Meiji era” including the previous shelf. As the name suggests, the sheath has been carved with gold in the part of the pod. It was a favor with a finely crafted from a sword w

Kawashima Hisashizou (three Generations) “Spring Yanjiao Takkari/Autumn garden view maple wall hanging”
When I think of a big wall mural that depicts the nobles in the mountains, it’s a fabric. Moreover, the detail is a millimeter level even if it is big. The accomplishments of the Teiuro is a great thing to do. W France is inspired by the Goblanc woven, it seems to be made of Japan traditional textile. It was colorful and completely like a painting.

Masaru  “Orchid Ling Wang” ★ Can be seen here.
This is an image of an actor who is acting “King Ranling” in a work that can be said to be a polar place of precision. I hold a thing like a stick in the right hand which I stretched diagonally and am taking a pose. She wears a gold mask on her face and wears gorgeous outfits. It seems to be a work which can be called the crystal of the engraving technology in the layer that the fine pattern of this clothes is made use of various techniques such as the hair carving. In addition, this mask is detachable, you can see the face that was removed in the catalogue. (With a rounded face, it was slit-eyed)

Takakawa Sosuke “Cloisonne Moon night Deep Forest figure”
In a portrait, the tree that grows on the river and the side, and the ink which draws the moon floating in the sky? If you think, it is Cloisonne w I think that 300 kinds of glazes were used to put out the color like the tint of this ink. The guts of the Teiuro accomplishments is really terrible w ink was expressed to feel and blurred feeling and blur. Even though this is great enough for ordinary ink painting and painting, I can only say that it is amazing.

Kawai Tamado “After Rain”
It is a work which wrote the Bank of the pond which seems to be hazy, and a rainbow comes out from the pond. It disappears or disappears by the rainbow, and it felt refreshing and fleeting. The trees on the other side were blurred and disappeared in the fog, and they seemed to express even the light. There was also an atmosphere to work on the ship wearing a mino in front.

Kaburagi Kiyokata “praised Haru”
The folding screen is a work of a very modern atmosphere. On the right, there are two schoolgirls who are relaxing in the lush imperial palace, and a classic car is running behind the scenes. A modern bridge (Kiyoshima Bridge of Sumida River) is drawn on the left ship, and the life of the mother and child who lives in the boat is drawn in the foreground. The mother and child seem to be poor, but there is a branch of cherry blossoms in the boat unexpectedly and it looks relaxed. I feel a contrasting position in the left and right, but it seems to enjoy the spring that visited equally. The picture of the poor mother and child of the left ship had been or try to admire in a strange place well put in the imperial family W

Uemura Shoen “Yukitsukihana” ★ Can be seen here.
I love the work of Shoen Uemura (>) The snow, the moon, and the flower are three sets of the theme, and my taste is snow. The other dayThe Mountain Art Museum Uemura Shoen ExhibitionThere was, but you can enjoy the expression that is transparent behind the blind. Nevertheless, the elegant beauties were very beautiful.

It was an exhibition that impressed me from the beginning to the end. Although it is very crowded, I think that it is a must-see exhibition of Art fan.
On the 1St Floor of Heiseikan, a modern Japanese painting was exhibited at the exhibition. There were a lot of people who didn’t notice.

Next time, I will introduce a permanent photograph of the Tokyo National Museum Main building which I saw after the special exhibition.
