Chapter Summary

This section presents a list of Japanese titles that occur as captions in the figures depicted in the book Painting Nature for the Nation: Taki Katei and the Challenges to Sinophile Culture in Meiji Japan. The book is concerned with the new genre of bird-and-flower painting, of which Katei was the most successful exponent, which developed in the 1890s as a form to represent Japan to both domestic and foreign audiences. These large-scale works gained popularity for their ornate and decorative qualities, as well as for the dazzling colours and precision of the brushwork, but their scale and bravura also symbolized Japan as an emerging modern nation state.

Keywords: Meiji Japan; Sinophile culture; Taki Katei
