  • Presented here is a collection of yokai (the strange and supernatural beings of Japanese folklore and history) painted by Toriyama Sekien (1712‒88), an artist of the middle Edo period. Sekien produced a series known as Hyakki Yagyō consisting of four books: Gazu Hyakki Yagyō (The illustrated demons’ night parade), Konjaku Gazu Zoku Hyakki (The illustrated demon horde from past and present, continued), Konjaku Hyakki Shūi (More of the demon horde from past and present), and Hyakki Tsurezure Bukuro (The illustrated 100 random demons, also seen as A horde of haunted housewares). The collection presented here contains the first and third of these books, bound as two volumes. The former was first published in spring 1776, the latter in spring 1781. This edition was published in 1805 by a different publisher. Hyakki yagyō (pandemonium) refers literally to a nocturnal procession of various specters and demons. This book does not depict an actual parade, but rather takes the form of a picture book with names and captions for the images of specters. Whereas The Illustrated Demons’ Night Parade adds only names to most of the pictures, the other three books attach short captions to almost all of the pictures. The first book contains an epilogue stating that it was inspired by the Chinese Shan Hai Jing (Classic of mountains and seas) and Kano Motonobu's Hyakki Yagyō. The book depicts many specters taken from classical Japanese and Chinese literary works and from folk traditions from around Japan. Sekien also includes many creatively depicted humorous specters; the work thus emphasizes not just the scariness of the images, but also contains comical depictions. Toriyama Sekien was born in a house which served the Edo bakufu (shogunate) for generations and is said to have been trained by Kano Gyokuen (1683‒1743) or Kano Chikanobu (1660‒1728). Kitagawa Utamaro (circa 1753‒1806) was one of his pupils. As well as painting, Toriyama Sekien made illustrated haiku books. (rdf:langString) (en)
  • 鳥山石燕〔とりやませきえん〕によって描かれた妖怪画集。『画図百鬼夜行〔えずひゃっきやぎょう〕』『今昔画図続百鬼〔こんじゃくえずぞくひゃっき〕』『今昔百鬼拾遺〔こんじゃくひゃっきしゅうい〕』『百器徒然袋〔ひゃっきつれづれぶくろ〕』の全四部からなる『百鬼夜行』シリーズのうち、一作目の『画図百鬼夜行』と三作目の『今昔百鬼拾遺』を合冊したもの。前者は安永5年(1776)春、後者は安永10年春にそれぞれ刊行されたが、当館所蔵本は文化2年(1805)に初版とは別の版元から出されたものである。 百鬼夜行とは、種々の妖怪が列をなして夜歩くことをいうが、本書は百鬼夜行そのものを描いてはいない。妖怪の絵に名称や詞書を付した図鑑のような体裁をとっている。なお『画図百鬼夜行』はほとんどの絵に名称のみを付し、『今昔画図続百鬼』以降の三作品はほぼ全ての絵に短い詞書が添えられている。 『画図百鬼夜行』の自跋には、中国の地理書『山海経〔せんがいきょう〕』と狩野元信〔かのうもとのぶ〕の『百鬼夜行』を参考にしたとある。日本や中国の古典文学作品や各地の民間伝承から取材した妖怪が多く描かれる一方、石燕が多分に創作を加えたユーモラスな妖怪も多い。絵は恐ろしさを強調するだけでなく、滑稽に描かれたものもある。  鳥山石燕(1712~1788)は江戸時代中期の画家。代々江戸幕府に勤め、画法を狩野玉燕〔かのうぎょくえん〕(あるいは狩野周信〔かのうちかのぶ〕)に学んだという。門人に喜多川歌麿〔きたがわうたまろ〕らがいる。また画業以外に俳諧にも作品を残している。 (xsd:string)
