Huge whale and Musashi Miyamoto by Fan Stanbrough

小小的宮本武蔵 (Musashi)试图杀死巨大的鲸鱼,反映了日本的捕鲸文化,是歌川国芳的名作。妹妹因为喜欢可爱的鲸鱼,让我画一副没有Musashi的画。可是我实在不忍去掉这点睛之笔。最爱穿着传统服饰的Musashi.

对这副画的介绍和理解很多,以下来源网络。

歌川国芳宫本武藏的鲸退治。

以江户初期的剑客宫本武藏的鲸退治传说为题材的浮世绘,场景设在当时的肥后国(也就是现在的熊本县)。三张连续的画面中横卧着一只巨鲸。画面中,海面似乎要失去平衡似的斜斜的卷起狂澜,画面右上方暗云涌起,而骑在鲸背上的武藏脸上自信满满,不带一丝阴翳。

歌川国芳的画作震撼人心之处在于画面营造的宏大感,这不仅体现在描绘与神怪战斗过程中的激烈场面,还在画幅制作上格外考究,由多画作拆分为多张组合而成 。站在画作前,甚至能够感受到澎湃海浪呼啸耳边,宫本武藏站在庞然巨怪背上最后给予致命一刀。除了让人胆寒的可怕鬼怪,歌川国芳还热衷于绘制一些可爱的精怪,在他的画作中金蟾(有说青蛙)具有人的形态,穿上了江户服饰,手持武士刀四处搞怪。其实这种形式的出现,是因为在江户幕府的统治下,日本开始进入一段稳定的太平时期,名为“戏画”的画作大量涌现,主要以讽刺和恶作剧为主,为了突出趣味,绘师会将人物丑化,将动物拟人化。这种画作的表现形式对于后来的浮世绘产生了深远影响。在29岁那年将自己的愤懑转化成了名作《水浒传豪杰百八人》,震惊了整个江户。
