本文將以蕪村「雪夜景圖」為軸，呈現其風景研究的另一個視角，歸結其雪夜景表現之特色，提供他晚年繪畫風格更完整的認識。 ;Yosa Buson (1716-1783), a Nanga painter of the Edo Period, signed “Sha’in” after his 63, and his career from 1778 to 1783 is called the “Sha’in Peroid.” During this period, his paintings showed more and more spontaneous and free expression. However, there are two main styles in the “Sha’in Peroid.” One is known as spontaneous ink expression, such as Houses on Snowy Night, Peaks of Mount Gabi and Kite and Crows. The other type is the works which used delicate strokes and quoted Chinese classic allusions. The two completely different styles show that Buson had been working on Chinese style even when he stepped on a new stage of career. Buson’s versatility in his late life, however, is not familiar to many modern viewers.
This study aims at showing both sides of Buson’s late styles by discussing the painter’s snowy and night scene paintings. By viewing the various characteristics of Buson’s works, we will understand the styles of his late life deeper.
