Mainly on works from the 19th century when Imperial Household Agency Museum of the Imperial Collections possesses to the present age, we introduce many works which assumed bird the subject including overseas thing as well as the country.
Bird having feather such as beautiful jewel danced the sky freely powerfully, and people longed for figure of flying bird for a long time, and found will of lucky sign, and described the figure, and formed, and decorated close. Crane considered to be long-lived bird comes up by all means in occasion of auspicious event. In addition, peacock which was holy, noble bird was described as one of the main motifs of painting of flowers and birds, and the tradition was succeeded in modern times. And, as for the chicken tied to life of person as poultry (forbids) closely, work full of dynamism was brought about in what writers actually kept chicken and observed and sketched while we were expressed as figure of peace of mind like *kotori (kankodori) based on legend of ancient China. In addition, please enjoy various expression of various birds including snow grouse that the extinction is felt uneasy about in imminent shokin and waterfowl, parakeet, the present age of naturalized species.
