Kanō Sanraku

Kanō Sanraku

▪ Japanese painter
original name Kanō Mitsuyori
born 1559, Japan
died Oct. 30, 1635, Kyōto

      sixth-generation member of the famous Kanō family of painters to the Japanese shoguns.

      He produced some of the greatest screen paintings of the Azuchi-Momoyama period (1574–1600). Sanraku was the disciple and adopted son of the leading painter of the day, Kanō Eitoku, and like him excelled in large-scale decorative designs executed in bold, sweeping lines and brilliant colours against gold-leaf backgrounds. He painted many folding screens and sliding panels, used to decorate the interiors of temples, castles, and palaces. Much of Sanraku's work still remains: “Birds of Prey,” on the screens in the J. Nishimura collection, Kumamoto City; legendary Chinese figures on a pair of screens in the Tokyo National Museum; and “Trees, Flowers, and Tigers,” on the walls of the Tenkyū-in chapel, Kyōto (designated as a national treasure). Sanraku also introduced a subject that became popular with later Kanō artists, historical figures selected from the Chinese book Ti chien t'u shuo (1573; “Illustrations of Exemplary Emperors”; Japanese trans., Teikan zusetsu, 1606).
