Ch: Dijiantu. The genre of "paintings of advice and admonition" *kankai-zu Š©‰ú} or didactic paintings which depict the deeds of famous Chinese emperors. The genre is based on the Chinese book Dijian Tushuo (Jp:TEIKAN ZUSETSU ’éŠÓ}à) or "Illustrated Mirror of Emperors" which was written by the Ming scholar Zhang Juzheng ’£‹³ (1525-82), published with illustrations in 1572, and presented to Emperor Shenzong _@ (1048-1085). Of the 117 stories, 81 tell of imperial good deeds and 36 tell of wicked emperors. The accounts begin with the legendary Xia dynasty Emperors Yao ‹Ä and Shun w two rulers of the Northern Song. The TEIKAN ZUSETSU reached Japan in the Momoyama period and Toyotomi Hideyori –LbG—Š (1593-1615) had it copied and republished in 1606. Teikan-zu often were painted by Kanou school *Kanouha Žë–ì”h artists for shogun patrons, because Japanese military rulers felt that the Confucian values espoused in teikan-zu helped legitimize their hegemony. Typically, they commissioned paintings only of righteous emperors, particularly those from the Han dynasty. Noteworthy examples include the screen by Kanou Sanraku Žë–ìŽRŠy (1559-1635, Tokyo National Mnseum) and wall paintings at Nagoyajou –¼ŒÃ‰®é by Kanou Tan'yuu Žë–ì’T—H (1602-74).
