Calligrapher Tsuneko Kumagai (1893-1986) loved the four seasons of Japan and created a book based on the poetry of medieval poets led by Fujiwara no Teika.Tsuneko exhibited "Fujiwara no Teika Kashu" at the 6th Taito Shodoin Exhibition and received a special prize.In producing this work, Tsuneko practiced many times, stating, "I pulled out a hundred waka poems, which are more preferable than Teika's poems, and wrote them every day."Fujiwara no Teika is a poet from the end of the Heian period to the beginning of the Kamakura period, and is one of the winners of the "Shin Kokin Wakashū", a collection of Japanese poems by the Emperor Go-Tobain. Since the establishment of the Kamakura Shogunate, the waka poems of Saigyo and Kamo no Chomei were selected for "Shin Kokin Wakashū" as the aristocratic society declined.
In this exhibition, in addition to "Izuru Day" (around 1936) in "Fujiwara no Teika Utashu" written by Tsuneko, when Fujiwara no Tadamichi leaves the house, Akiko Fujiwara will be given a costume to change clothes from spring to summer. "Karagi" (production year unknown), which describes his feelings, and "Tsukuni" (1965), which mourns the winter wilderness where Saigyo has completely changed from the spring scenery of Settsu, are included in "Shin Kokin Wakashū". We will exhibit the works of Tsuneko who wrote Japanese poems.In addition, Saigyo, who was a priest, wrote about his life in the mountain village, "Yamadera" (1970), and Kamo no Chomei, who retired in his later years, wrote the beginning of "Hojoki", which describes the world's impermanence. Please enjoy the melancholy poetry written by Tsuneko, such as "(1975)", which was sung by a medieval poet according to the four seasons of Japan.
