This exhibition is a commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the emperor’s accession to the throne for 20 years. It was an overwhelming storm. I stopped taking notes on the way and decided to buy the catalogue so I could enjoy the work carefully.
Today, I would like to introduce a piece that I particularly liked in Chapter 1. I liked almost all of the chapters, but I can’t write them all.

1 period 1: Masterpieces of Early Modern painting >
Tomomatsu Kaihoku “Hamamatsu View Screen”
It is a folding screen with a winding river of gold sands and silver (Brown-ish). It is seen from a high point of view, and the appearance that a green pine and a bird dances is drawn, too. I felt the grandeur like the folding screen and admired the quiet atmosphere. It’s a bit far away and the whole look is more stunning.

Eitoku Kano “Four Seasons flower drawing screen”
It is a work of one gate made in the last years of Kano Yongtoku. Although I feel that the atmosphere is a little different from the work of the wealthy yongtoku, the graceful flowering of the four Seasons is blooming. It was a very gorgeous atmosphere in the gold area.

Eitoku Kano “The Tale of Genji”
The right hand side is “Dragonfly”, the right-hand Center is “Girl (Otome)”, right side of the ship “Tropical (Tokonatsu)” Each scene of the Tale of Genji is depicted. As is often the work that depicts the imperial court, the structure looks like a building with no ceilings overhead, and the clouds are haze in the room. There were a lot of nobles there, and the detail was drawn finely. The twelfth was especially elegant and brilliant. In addition, the left ship was the scene of “Wakasaki”, and the appearance that the woman was appreciating that the cherry blossoms bloomed in the garden was drawn. The part of the Cherry Tree was a little excited when I watched it well. It was delicate and regal, and it was a work of dignity suitable for imperial family.

Eitoku Kano “Karokoku-folding Screen” ★ Can be seen here.
I came to this exhibition to watch this! I think that it is a work that everyone knows in the textbook etc. It was a fine size, and it was a mural rather than a folding screen? There seems to be a theory, too. (It seems to me that Hideyoshi sent it to me at the time of the peace with Mori, but it seems to me that Hideyoshi made it as a mural in the castle. The branch of the tree to the left of the picture was cut unnatural, and there was a continuation in the ahead? You can imagine.
Now, about the picture itself, there are two very powerful Tang lions walking in parallel. I feel like I have a conversation with two things, but is it because of the mind? W a lot of vortex is drawn on the mane and tail, it might be the source of feeling the power? I thought. There seemed to be a wealthy release of the Sengoku warlords including the rocky in the background. Is a must see!

Tsununobu Kano “Karinobu-folding Screen”
Kano Tsununobu is a grandchildren of Kano Eitoku, and complements the left ship, which is a pair of the right-hand Kano Eitoku “karolion Figure folding Screen”. It seems to come running from the left with one head and the mouth open the Tang Dynasty which receives a gentle, graceful impression compared with Nagoku. … You know, feed me! I like the dog at the time w I do not have the impact of about the right ship, but it was wonderful work.

Unknown Author: “A picture of a thousand countries”
The work that Emperor Meiji was putting on the side. On the right, the two knights are drawn on horseback at the top of the horse, with a view of the 28 cities in Europe, London, Paris and Rome.
On the left, a large world map is drawn in the middle, and a total of 42 men and women of each country are drawn in three rows × 7 stages and three rows × 7 stages in the right and left edge. The world map is quite elaborate and Australia, North and South America, but I’m surprised to have been drawn to Antarctica-ish, but there was no Hokkaido in the Japan for some reason, I’m really surprised to see that the folding screen before the Edo period and the world is so hard to imagine, In fact, this is the initial Western-style painting that missionaries teach to Japanese to decorate the church. At the time of restoration, the sketch of the Roman Emperor statue came out from under this picture. It was a piece to feel a variety of mysteries.

Jakuchu Ito “Asahi Sangyo Kaisha Phoenix Figure”
When I entered the second room, there was a work of Jakuchu, and this alone is a great content. First of all, this Phoenix figure. The Phoenix which was drawn dense to one feather hair has been drawn vividly. The Asahi Sangyo Kaisha is drawn in the upper right and it is an atmosphere of the eye. The Phoenix was very glossy and had an intellect in his eyes and was like a person.

Well, here is the emergence of “Ayaginu picture” series. The Ayaginu paintings are all 30 pieces (all the same size) and are donated with the Statue of Buddha in Kyoto’s Aiji temple. In this exhibition, you can watch all 30 pieces at once. The technique of “back coloring” is used in almost all works, and it becomes a deep color expression Ayaginu This movement planting picture. Also, it is said that lacquer is used in the eyes of animals.
(“Back coloring” because I also covered in this blog,HereFor more information. )
All 30 of them were wonderful, but I would like to introduce them to you.

Jakuchu Ito “Ayaginu in the Snow Oshidori”
The figure of the bird which stays in the branch of the tree where the snow piled up, and is drawn in the river and it is in the stream of the diving. The method of expression of the snow is splendid, and it is a feeling that the powder snow is really falling. In the silence of the snow, it was the atmosphere that the water sound that the Oshidori dives seemed to hear.

Jakuchu Ito “Ayaginu Picture Sunflower Rooster” ★ Can be seen here.
It is a chicken to say anything Jakuchu! The chicken that Jakuchu drew has a sense of style and life like a Phoenix. In this picture, there was brilliant in the gesture which looked back and the tail which mixed with black and white. And, the Sunflower and the Morning glory on the head were drawn finely, and the appearance that the leaf was worm-eaten, and was a piece which was able to taste the life overflowing feeling of the summer realistic.

Jakuchu Ito “Dynamic planting Ayaginu picture Hydrangea twin chicken figure”
A crouching chicken and a chicken with a splendid tail (also a little slouch here) are drawn, and the hydrangea of the white and the dark blue is drawn from the right to the top. There were other pink flowers and it was a gorgeous atmosphere. The red and tail black of the chicken crest is also impressive.

Jakuchu Ito “The ayaginu of the movement planting picture Umehana Group Crane”
It looks like three cranes are resting under the plum blossoms in full bloom. (When I looked closely, I saw another feather in the left back, and four feathers), and the feather was drawn in the wings like the white of the crane, and the texture of the feather was good. The crane which raised the neck to the left was beautiful with a slender feeling. The assortment with the plum is splendid.

Jakuchu Ito “Ayaginu Picture Group Chicken” ★ Can be seen here.
If you count, you’ll see 12 chickens all over the place. Each has a different hair color, it is divided finely. The chickens in various herds, such as those pointing to the right, those pointing to the left, and those facing the front, seemed to be the culmination of Jakuchu chicken paintings.

Jakuchu Ito “Ayaginu”
The figure of the wild goose which descended from the sky is drawn. The figure which spreads the wing to the head down feels a smooth orbit in a dignified manner. There seemed to be a spacious sky in the screen with a blank background except that the tree with snow piled on the right was drawn.

Jakuchu Ito “Ayaginu pictures of moving Plants”, “the fish figure of the Ayaginu picture County,”
It is not only the bird that Jakuchu is drawing w This depicts the fish of the sea. Everyone is pointing to the lower left, it looks like a little picture book W in particular the octopus of various fish figure that caught the eye, it was cute that a small child octopus wound on the foot which extended to the left long.

The big name of the Edo period is a wonderful content even after the Jakuchu room. However, it was a difficult to narrow…

Maruyama Ohyama “Genji Shiki-Shibu”
This is also a work on the theme of “Girl (Otome)”. Like an island in the sea of gold clouds, the houses and hills were drawn, and there was a graceful and supple atmosphere like a picture of Yamato. It is a rare style for the fair.

Maruyama Ohtora “Asahi Sangyo Kaisha”
A big tiger is drawn in the shade of the ink. It looks up at the edge of the sky in the cliff, and it is powerful from the whole. However, the face looked like a pretty w cat, and eyes were especially cute with the cat eyes.

Iwasa Matabe “Oguri Hangan Emaki Vol. 1, 11, 13” ★ Can be seen in the “introduction of the work” here.
It is a picture scroll of mysterious atmosphere somewhere. This story is like a story from the Oguri of the hero’s death to the return of the kids with the help of a lover, to be enshrined as a God. It is drawn in dense and vivid colors, but the appearance of Enma great and kids had a mysterious aura. The figure of kids to be carried in a car is disgusting cute W

Yamaguchi Motoaya “Morning Glory Dog Figure”
It is a picture of three dogs, and the morning glories are drawn in the back. The dog on the left is listening to his hind legs and seems pretty. You Marukkoku three dogs and you’re still a puppy? It was a heartwarming atmosphere.

Rosetsu Nagasawa “Karako sleeping figure”
The child who has a red apron is put on the futon and is sleeping. It seems that Karako is a child of China, but the normal child of a little stupid side is also w a very restful expression. The body was a simplified feeling, but the baby’s puni feeling was out.

Beauties Sakai, “The twelve month figure” ★ Can be seen in the “introduction of the work” here.
It is the hanging axis of 12 sheets from January to December. Especially, it was “鷭 in May Kakitsubata”, “螽斯 figure in August Autumn Grass” and “Shirasagi figure in November Ashi”. Each of the 12 pieces had a characteristic that the beauty and the sense of life of the beauties came out, and it was drawn diagonally. The work of hug is always graceful.

Katsushika Hokusai “Watermelon Map” ★ Can be seen in the “introduction of the work” here.
Hokusai the hanging axes around the age of eighty. This painting is a work with the Hokusai of Still life, and a kitchen knife is put on the watermelon which was cut in half horizontally, and a cleaver is placed on it though it was drawing variously besides the ukiyoe. In addition, the skin of the watermelon rolled back thinly from the top was hung on the string, and it was red and white with a whitish skin and a reddish skin. There was an explanation like imitating the tanabata ritual, and it was a meaningful feeling.

So, at this point I’m very satisfied, but this is half. It is really terrible and fulfilling condition. Next time I will introduce 2 chapters in the latter part. The transcendence work of accomplishments members of the Teiuro is jostling W

The weather was fine on this day, and there was a rainbow in the fountain.
