poster for "National Treasure - Bandai Nagon Scrolls" Exhibition

This event has ended.

In the long and illustrious history of Japanese paintings, the Heian Period stands out as the era that consistently produced some of the most beautiful Buddhist paintings, reflecting the sensitive aesthetics of the nobles and superior techniques of the artists.

This is an exhibition of the Bandai Nagon Scrolls, one of the 'four main picture scrolls' of this period. The scrolls depict the Ohtenmon Incident of 866 in precise detail.

Prior to this exhibition, Idemitsu Museum of Arts performed optical research with the National Research Institute for Cultural Properties, Tokyo. Their research delved into the mysteries of the relation between the Ohtenmon Incident and the scrolls. The exhibition includes many blown-up photographs of the characters in the scrolls by using digital photograph techniques.

Due to the advanced age of the scrolls, duplicates will be displayed at times. Please visit their website for further details.

展示されているのはホントに伴大納言絵巻のみ。なのになんでこんなひとが多いのかと本気で疑問に思った。さすが国宝。。。待っているだけでどんどん体力が吸い取られる。散々待ったわりにあっさりと鑑賞時間は過ぎたけど、人物の描写・炎の表現・絵巻の使い方など、どれに取っても、すごい。それはもう技法とか技術とか、そういうレベルのハナシじゃなくて、何というか、オーラ??
絵巻の一場面を拡大してまるで場面に入り込んだかのような体験ができるスペースもあり、面白かった。そこを満喫していると閉館時間がきて、消灯。朝一か閉館間際がいいかも。
