Scroll painting after Tanaka Nikka (1773-1845) - "Seven sages in the bamboo grove" - Japan - Late 19th/early 20th century
Tanaka Nikka (1773-1845) was a very skillful Shijo school painter. He studied under Okamoto Toyohiko and excelled in figures, flowers and birds.
In China during the turbulent years of the early Western Jin dynasty (265–317), seven literati secluded themselves in a bamboo grove outside the capital. There they escaped from the strictures of officialdom and Confucian conduct, drinking wine, engaging in a witty Daoist discourse called qingtan, and playing music and chess. Their story became a legend and the frequent subject of painting in China, and eventually Japan.
