歌川国芳(うたがわくによし1797-1861)の出世作は、文政10年(1827)頃から刊行された大判揃物「通俗水滸伝豪傑百八人之一個(壱人)」です。国芳の迫力ある筆の力とそれを支えた彫師、摺師の技は必見です。今回は本館所蔵の大判全図を中心に中判、和漢準源氏、そして安永3年正月に浅草奥山で行われた生人形展に関連した生人形シリーズ、さらには先輩後輩絵師たちの影響作も展示いたします。涼しい博物館で“熱き英雄たち”の浮世絵をごゆっくりとお楽しみ下さい。

In 1827, Utagawa Kuniyoshi (1797-1861) rose to fame with the publication of the ōban (26.5 x 39cm) series, “108 Heroes of the Suikoden”. The power of Kuniyoshi’s brushstrokes and the incredible skill of his supporting woodblock carver and printer technicians are not to be missed.

In this exhibition, we feature the complete ōban series of these works from our collection, along with chūban-sized (19.5 x 26.5cm) prints, the “Japanese and Chinese stories in imitation of the Genji novel’” series, and the “Living Dolls” series that takes place in Okuyama district of Asakusa at New Years in 1774.

Further, the exhibition also displays works by later artists and contemporaries that were influenced by Kuniyoshi. Enjoy the hot heroic passion of these ukiyo-e masterpieces in the cool of our museum.

歌舞・音曲の世界 Song and Dance – The World of Music

日本の歌舞・音曲は、古代の神楽が原点ですが、まだ太鼓や笛だけのお囃子でした。

室町期の世阿弥(1363-1443)の出現により、演劇の本質が加わり、

永禄期(1550s)に三味線が入ってきて、浄瑠璃、歌舞伎へと飛躍的な発展を遂げました。

Although ancient kagura (sacred music and dance) was the starting point for ongyoku (Japanese song and dance accompanied by shamisen music), it was still only accompanied by drum and flute.  Later, with the appearance of Zeami (1363? – 1443?), of the Muromachi Period, the essence of theatre was added.  In the Eiroku Period (1550s), the shamisen joined the mix, and the dramatic development of joururi (Japanese ballad drama) and kabuki was thus achieved

美人画は、浮世絵の題材として最も古くから描かれ、その時代における理想の女性像を描いたものでした。中でも江戸中期の美人画の天才、喜多川歌麿は女性の特徴や境遇までとらえていました。そして、幕末から近代にかけて新版画運動が始まると同時にモダンで活き活きとした美人画が生まれ、伝統の技と美を継承しています。 

Bijin-ga (portraiture of beautiful women) is the oldest subject of ukiyo-e, which portrayed the ideal female image according to the time period.Among this artwork, in the middle of the Edo Period, a genius of bijin-ga, Kitagawa Utamaro, captured the characteristics and circumstances of women. Also, from the end of the Edo Period until modern times, at the same time that the shin-hanga (new type of woodblock print) movement was starting, a new modern and lively bijin-ga was born, inheriting traditional skill and beauty.
