    Mikaeri Bijin (Beauty looking back) - Moronobu Hishikawa

    補足(例文と訳など)

    答え

    • Mikaeri Bijin is one of the masterpieces of Moronobu Hishikawa. "The beauty looking back", was famously used on a Japanese postal stamp. Mikaeri-bijin is a traditional Japanese girl's gesture, a sign that she's into you! Hishikawa Moronobu (1618 – 1694) was a Japanese painter and print maker known for his advancement of the ukiyoe woodcut style starting in the 1670s. Hishikawa Monorobu is said to be the father of Japan's Ukiyoe style of art.

    Sansei Otani Oniji no Yattokobei (Otani Oniji as Eitoku) - Tōshūsai Sharaku

    補足(例文と訳など)

    答え

    • Otani Oniji as Eitoku is a woodblock print by the Japanese Ukiyoe artist Tōshūsai Sharaku. It has been done in 1794-95 during the Edo period. This is a portrait of a kabuki actor in performance, his face reflecting the emotion of the scene. Tōshūsai Sharaku , is widely considered one of the great masters of Japanese prints (woodcuts). His work represents the Kabuki's most famous actor of his time. His career appears to have been so brief in part because the radical nature of his work aroused the hostility of the art world in Edo. One contemporary manuscript records: "Sharaku designed likenesses of Kabuki actors, but because he depicted them too truthfully, his prints did not conform to accepted ideas, and his career was short." However, we know very little about him, besides his ukiyo-e prints, we don't know for sure what was his real name and the exact date of his death.

    [Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji] Kanagawa Okinami-ura (The Great Wave off Kanagawa) - Hokusai Katsushika

    補足(例文と訳など)

    答え

    • The Great Wave off Kanagawa, also known as The Great Wave or simply The Wave, is an ukiyo-e woodblock print by Japanese artist Hokusai, published sometime between 1830 and 1833 in the late Edo period as the first print in Hokusai's series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji (Fugaku sanjūrokkei). It is Hokusai's most famous work, and one of the best recognized works of Japanese art in the world. It depicts an enormous wave threatening boats off the coast of the prefecture of Kanagawa. While sometimes assumed to be a tsunami, the wave is, as the picture's title notes, more likely to be a large okinami ("wave of the open sea"). As in all the prints in the series, it depicts the area around Mount Fuji under particular conditions, and the mountain itself appears in the background.

    [Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji] Gaifū kaisei (South Wind, Clear Sky) - Hokusai Katsushika

    補足(例文と訳など)

    答え

    • It is said that when conditions are right in late summer or early autumn, with a wind from the south and a clear sky, the slopes of Fuji can appear dyed red by the rays of the rising sun. This is the most abstracted composition and yet the most metereologically specific of Hokusai's series. The delicately hovering clouds part to form a halo around the summit veined with sparse remnants of snow. The lower regions are still in shadow and it is only the bare slopes above the tree-line that catch the sun, turning (in this impression) a bright, brick red. The three shades of blue in the sky seem like a mirror-reversal of the three colours on the mountain.

    Tako to Ama (The Dream of the Fisherman's Wife) - Hokusai Katsushika

    補足(例文と訳など)

    答え

    • The Dream of the Fisherman's Wife is a zoophilia-associated woodcut design of the ukiyo-e genre by the Japanese artist Hokusai. It is from the book Kinoe no Komatsu (English: Young Pines), a three-volume book of shunga erotica first published in 1814, and is the most famous shunga Hokusai ever produced. Playing with themes popular in Japanese art, it depicts a young ama diver entwined sexually with a pair of octopuses. [Shunga] The ukiyo-e movement as a whole sought to express an idealisation of contemporary urban life and appeal to the new chōnin class. Following the aesthetics of everyday life, Edo period shunga varied widely in its depictions of sexuality. As a subset of ukiyo-e it was enjoyed by all social groups in the Edo period, despite being out of favour with the shogunate. Almost all ukiyo-e artists made shunga at some point in their careers, and it did not detract from their prestige as artists.Classifying shunga as a kind of medieval pornography can be misleading in this respect.
