  • 舞楽図屏風 無銘 六曲一隻  紙本金地着色 江戸時代(18世紀)

    Bugaku is a type of music with accompanying dance performances that was imported into Japan from continental Asia in the late 8th century. During the Nara (710-794) and Heian (794-1192) periods it developed a style unique to Japan as the official performing art of the Imperial Court, Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines. This tradition was maintained throughout the medieval and early-modern ages by temples and shrines as well as at the Court in their annual events.
