This set of manga paintings was created in 1927, looking back at sixty years since the Meiji Restoration of 1868. Events commemorated are a mixture of international, national and social developments, emphasising Japan’s foreign victories and colonial ambitions, also featuring the technological monikers of modernisation such as the telegraph, railways, airplanes and radio. The style is loose and abbreviated in the manga style and the tone generally comic but sometimes surprisingly sober.
The paintings were originally created by a group of 25 manga artists, some of them major figures, with two paintings done by each artist. They were sold and distributed by subscription (including postal subscription) at a price of sixty yen for the set. It is not recorded how many sets were created. A photocopy of the original explanatory booklet includes two photos: the first shows the group of artists meeting at Chūō Bijutsu Kyōkai on 12 September 1927 to discuss the project; and the second, taken a week later on 19 September, shows them standing around a table looking at the piles of finished paintings. The booklet also has much more detailed printed descriptions than the table of contents, a kind of historical narrative celebrating in an upbeat way the modernisation of the country.
Manga have always been firmly rooted in the popular life of Japan and it is fascinating here to see them mobilised to present such a meta-narrative of the modernising of the nation. Six months later, a similar project was apparently organised to produce Manga Paintings: Illustrations of Two Thousand Five Hundred Years of History Since the Founding of the Country (Nikuhitsu manga: Kenkoku nisen gohyakunen-shi zue) – another set of fifty manga paintings by a similar group of artists, also organised and distributed by Chūō Bijutsu Kyōkai. This extends the rhetoric of the current series in an even more nationalistic direction.
Two of the original paintings--the portraits of writers Masaoka Shiki and Natsume Soseki--are missing from this group of what was originally planned as fifty works, but the album gives no evidence that these paintings were removed. (T. Clark 10/2015, The British Museum)


Collections : Complete sets are held in the collections of the British Museum; the Peabody Essex Museum, Salem, Massachusetts; and Harvard Yenching Library. Individual pages are held in the collections of the National Library of Australia and the Honoolulu Museum of Art.
