Kyôsai kawanabe(1831-1889) was born at the end of the Edo era, and at age of 7 entered the school of the woodblock print, ukiyo-e master, Utagawa Kuniyoshi. At 10, he began studying under the Kano school, but soon abandoned any formal traditions to become known as the "Demon of Painting" at the beginning of the Meiji period and gained a reputation as a popular illustrator, or caricaturist. At around the same time, the British architect Josiah Conder (1852-1920) the renowned designer of the original Mitsubishi Ichigokan, came to Japan and left a major and distinguished mark on Japan’s modern architecture. Conder had a keen interest and love of Japanese art and was accepted by Kyôsai as his student, eventually introducing the art of the master to an overseas audience. This exhibition celebrates the 5th anniversary of the opening of the Mitsubishi Ichigokan Museum,Tokyo and as well as lauding the remarkable work of Conder himself, it will also give an amazing opportunity to view about 130 of Kyôsai’s pieces in all (displays will change after the first period of the exhibit). The works are from collections in Japan and abroad, and amply show Conder’s respect and admiration for his teacher, covering a wide scope of genres from the dignified to the humorous.

展覧会:「画鬼 暁齊」
河鍋暁斎 (かわなべ きょうさい、1831-1889)は、幕末に生まれ、6歳で浮世絵師歌川国芳に入門、9歳で狩野 派に転じてその正統的な修業を終え、幕末明治に「画鬼」と称され、絶大な人気を博した絵師です。一方、三菱一 号館を設計した英国人建築家ジョサイア・コンドル(1852 -1920)は、政府に招かれ明治10(1877)年 に来日、日本の近代建築に多大な功績を残しました。彼は日本美術愛好家でもあり、暁斎に弟子入りして絵を学び、師の作品を海外に紹介しました。本展では、三菱一号館美術館開館5周年を記念し、コンドルの業績とともに、彼の敬愛する暁斎の厳粛さからユーモアまでただよわせる型破りな画業を、様々なジャンルにわたる国内外の名品約120点(展示替え有)によりご覧いただきます。
