`Choyo Fuji-zu` [Painting of Mt. Fuji at Sunrise] by Kano Tsunenobu.
That the sky, mountain, cloud, and the shadow of the cloud are perfectly expressed in just one colour is proof of Tsunenobu`s ability.
The red sunrise which releases light from between the clouds adds a further notable dimension to the artwork.
Artist: Kano Tsunenobu (1636-1713)
About the artist:
Kano Tsunenobu was an artist who worked for the Edo Bakufu at the start of the Edo period. His father was Kano Naonobu. In childhood he was called Sanmi and Ukon, and later used names such as Yoboku, Kokansai, Shirao, Furukawaso, Seihakusai, Kanunshi, and Seioku. His children include Kano Chikanobu, his oldest son, who succeeded him, Kano Minenobu, the middle son, who established the Hamacho Kano Clan, and the son who succeeded this new clan, Kano Yoshinobu.
Tsunenobu is considered to be one of the four great masters of the Kano school, along with Kano Motonobu, Kano Eitoku, and Kano Tanyu.
There are records of Tsunenobu working on a painting for the Konoe Clan, painting the paper sliding door artwork titled `Kenjyo no Shoji` in the Edo Imperial Palace, and so on.
His works are currently held at the Konchi-in Temple, other celebrated temples, the National Museum, the Tokugawa Art Museum, the Shizuoka Prefectural Museum of Art, and internationally by the Seattle Art Museum, the Honolulu Museum of Art, and so on.
Kano Tsunenobu earned immense support from daimyo in the Edo period.
Because the morning sun ascending the sky can also symbolize something `thriving`, perhaps to the daimyo of a prospering family this artwork also had a somewhat superstitious meaning.
Mt. Fuji, loved as a symbol of Japan for hundreds of years, was also considered a holy mountain (especially by the people of Kyoto), as shown by the fact that there were already songs in existence about the mountain in the Heian period.
The oldest illustration of Mt. Fuji still in existence, currently held by Horyuji Temple, is known to be from 1069.
Mt. Fuji did not only become a symbol of faith, but, starting with Katsushika Hokusai, many artists were fascinated by the mountain and its appearance. As a consequence of this, Mt. Fuji has been painted by many artists, in a variety of unique styles, over many centuries.
