Monogatarie - NARA-EHON EMAKI
Monogatarie, a culture that Japan boasts to the World, is the origin of manga and anime.
Japan is the birthplace of various types of picture scrolls, picture books,
ukiyoe block prints from the Edo period, and pictures drawn on folding screens.
The ones that tell the finest stories are called monogatarie.
Notably,the Nara-ehon emaki are picture books and scrolls from between 1560 and 1750.
Our museum has a collection of over 50 monogatarie, covering a wide range of content,
field and form, from crude and simplistic to luxurious and gorgeous themes.
Many authors and dates previously unknown are recently coming to light.
