Lit. paintings of Zen ‘T occasions. Illustrations of acts (including dialogues) which led to enlightenment. The subjects come from well-known Zen anecdotes collected in biographies and compilations of kouan ŒöˆÄ (Ch: chigongan), conundrums used as a means of enlightenment, such as the Blue Cliff (Ch: Biyanlu, Jp: HEKIGANROKU •ÉŠÞ˜^) and Gateless Gate (Ch: Wumenguan, Jp: MUMOMKAN –³–åŠÖ). The genre derives from Song and Yuan dynasty paintings *sougenga ‘vŒ³‰æ, typified by the works of Liang Kai (Jp: Ryou Kai —Àž², act.13c) and Muqi (Jp: Mokkei –qæ®, late 13c). Japanese painters from the Muromachi period (15c) onwards, frequently rendered these themes, especially when working in the ink painting medium. Favorite zenki-zu include Rokuso Setchiku ˜Z‘cB’| (The Sixth Patriarch Chopping Bamboo), *Eka Danpi Œd‰Â’fä] (Huiko Cutting His Arm), *Kensu 儎q (Priest Xianzi / Catching Prawns), Kougen Setchiku ŒµŒ‚’| (Zhi Xiang Striking Bamboo), and Hyounen •Zˆ¼ (Catching a Catfish with a Gourd).
