Art on Tuesday: Tenman-gu in Ôsaka

標準

Japan Kaleidoskop

Hasegawa Sadanobu I (1809–1879) painted this interesting ukiyo-e named The Temporary Shrine of the Tenman-gû 天満宮御旅所 as part of his series One Hundred Views of Ôsaka in 1869/70. It is a beautiful scene from the perspective of the river showing one leisure boat from the side with two Japanese women. In the background of the river you see two punts with barrels. The Tenman-gu Shrine in Ôsaka 大阪天満宮 was build in the 10th century, but often burned down and was then rebuild many times. The Tenjin-Matsuri is held here on July 24th and 25th every year as one of the biggest festivals in Japan.

This ukiyo-e by Kikuzawa Eizan 菊川 英山 (1787- 1867) shows a stylish Japanese girl in an orange-red kimono barefoot on wooden sandals. It is cold outside. The wind is blowing and she is holding her clothes with one hand, so you can see a little bit of her legs without stockings. She must freeze, her right hand is covered by her sleeve and with the other hand she is holding an umbrella. Unbelievable, but she shows no sign of discomfort.

Art on Tuesday: October – Autumn Tints

標準

       

Posted on October 13, 2015This ukiyo-e was made by Nakayama Shuko (b. 1876) around 1920. It is one of his so-called  Shin ukiyo-e bijin awase, which is a collection of woodblock prints in a new style showing beautiful women. The title is October: Autumn Tints. This picture is very charming showing a Japanese woman contemplating. It shows a soft-focus effect on the face and hair-line. Her hair-dressing and clothes are in full color. The leaves belong to a  maple tree. Orange maple leaves are a typical symbol of  the Japanese autumn.
