Description
 
Timon Screech (au). Reassesses the career of the chief minister Matsudaira Sadanobu & locates it within broader cultural & intellectual concerns. Aware of how visual representations could support or undermine regimes, Sadanobu promoted certain styles of painting that differed from the hedonistic ukiyo-e tradition, to advance his own political aims & improve the shogunate’s image. In 1788, the city of Kyoto was destroyed by fire. Its reconstruction provided the stage for the consummation of the ‘shogun’s painted culture’ in a renewed iconography of power. Once retired, Sadanobu continued to work, issuing endless recommendations to the government. He played a key role in defining what we call ‘Japanese culture’ today. B&W illustrations.
