Kanō Masanobu


Kanō Masanobu

▪ Japanese painter

born 1434
died 1530, Kyōto, Japan

      chief painter to the Ashikaga shoguns (family of military rulers who governed Japan from 1338 to 1573) and founder of the hereditary line of artists who, as official painters to the shoguns, dominated Japanese painting for more than 300 years with their “Japanized” Chinese painting style.

      Masanobu was influenced by the priest-painter Tenshō Shūbun and, like him, worked in the suiboku (“water-ink”) painting tradition inspired by Chinese monochromatic ink painting. Unlike Shūbun, however, Masanobu was not a priest; in his suiboku landscapes the vague outlines and subtle ink washes expressive of Zen Buddhist mysticism are supplanted by the more carefully defined forms characteristic of native Japanese art. While Masanobu is reputed to have done figure paintings of saints and bodhisattvas in the manner of Shūbun, none of these survive. Among the few extant works by him are “The Sage Chou Mao-shu in a Lotus Pond” (Nakamura Collection, Tokyo) and a screen painting of a crane (Shinju-an monastery, Kyōto).
