Exhibition summary

Interesting "The Tale of Genji" and "Ise story" of court literature.
Rich image of two picture scrolls investigates each other's fresh charm by book exhibition after death of Mitsuyoshi Tosa (1539-1613) leaving Momoyama era, superior Genji picture in crossing place in this year equal to 400 years.

2013 is 400 years after death of illustrator, Mitsuyoshi Tosa (1539-1613) who led Genji picture in Momoyama era. Therefore story picture near Genji picture arrests Genji picture of Kokichi and the time by comparison with Ise picture at this exhibition among other things again.
"The Tale of Genji" concluded in the early eleventh century is said to have come to be become picture without almost passing through time from there. Approximately 1,000 years after establishment love design of dynasty given glory to by gold and silver and full color cannot help still attracting many people.
By the way, it is well known that "The Tale of Genji" gets idea from some preceding literary works in contents of setting and kakucho of character. Biography "Ise story" of "man" regarded as Narihira Ariwarano was one of the important inspirations. Some main character, Hikaru Genji of each story and parts letting place having breeding and intelligence and good looks inheriting a trait or talent from the Emperor each other go to Narihira similar to line of story including the whole story of heroinism and love are seen.
 We apply close relations accepted this time by text to each picture and find example letting pattern and expression go between Genji picture and Ise picture in the 17th century led by Kokichi. On top of that, we investigate reason of such kohibiki to clue by explanatory note understanding of court nobles at the time.
We arrest, and this exhibition introduces each fresh viewpoint to the cause with a panoramic view of Genji picture and Ise picture which were often displayed separately until now.
