Collection of Young Trees of Painting; one volume biography of Japanese painters by Kanou Ikkei Žë–ìˆêŒk (1599-1662). Compiled ca.1650, the biography includes 153 artists, beginning with Minchou –¾’› (1352-1431), and is divided into medieval chuusei ’†¢ ink painters, Tosa “y² artists, Kanou main families (with lineage chart), and post-Keichou Œc’· era (after 1615) painters not included in the Tosa or Kanou schools, *Tosaha “y²”h or *Kanouha Žë–ì”h. The text seems to be a rough draft probably written between 1648-55 (Keian ŒcˆÀ to Jouou ³‰ž eras), while the last part of the work including the lineage of Chinese-style painters is likely by a later author. TANSEI JAKUBOKUSHUU is the oldest extant study of Japanese painters and an important precursor to *HONCHOU GASHI –{’©‰æŽj, from which it differs in regards to the content of many biographies. Modeled on the Chinese work Tuhui Baojian (Jp: *TOKAI HOUKAN }ŠG•óŠÓ), biographical entries include information on the artists background, including anecdotal accounts, as well as an assessment of his merit or importance. The text is reproduced in Sakazaki Tan âè’R, ed. NIHON GARON TAIKAN “ú–{‰æ˜_‘åŠÏ, 2:923-950.
