Yoshitsune Leaving for Oshu Province


Abstract

  • This picture scroll illustrates the story of Minamoto Yoshitsune (1159-89), a military commander at the end of the 12th century, and his legendary retainer Benkei (?-1189). Yoshitsune’s older brother Minamoto Yoritomo (1147-99) became suspicions of his younger brother’s ambition after Yoshitsune achieved a series of military successes. Yorimoto had Yoshitsune expelled from Kyoto. Yoshitsune sought the protection of the Fujiwara family in Hiraizume, Oshū province, but in the end was hounded to death and forced to commit suicide by his powerful brother. The tragic story of Yoshitsune and Benkei has been popular in Japan and used in novels and dramas since the Muromachi period (1336-1573).(en)

    兄頼朝に追われ都落ちした義経と弁慶一行が、奥州平泉の秀衡館に到着するまでの物語である。但しこの絵巻は加賀安宅からはじまる。書写年はないが、書風、画風、料紙などから室町時代後期頃と推定され、中尊寺蔵『義経北国落絵巻』よりもやや古いとみられる。巻頭にある印記「早雲寺」は、大永元年(1521)に北条氏の菩提寺として建立された箱根の早雲寺であろう。文化頃の公家鷲尾(わしのお)隆純の手による題箋が付されている。
