風神雷神図/Fujin Raijin-zu (Picture of Wind and Thunder Gods)/(俵屋宗達/Tawaraya Sōtatsu)
国宝。2曲1双・紙本金地着色、各154.5×169.8cm、建仁寺蔵(京都国立博物館に寄託)。
落款、印章はないが、宗達の真筆であることは疑われていない。17世紀前半寛永期、宗達
最晩年の作とする説が有力だが、法橋印が無いことや、おおらかな線質が養源院の杉戸絵
と共通することから元和末期(1624年)頃の作とする説もある。

Tawaraya Sōtatsu (俵屋 宗達, early 17th century) was a Japanese artist and also
the co-founder of the Rimpa school of Japanese painting. Sōtatsu began to work as
a fan-painter in Kyoto. Later, he rose to work for the court as a producer of fine
decorated papers for calligraphy. He was highly influenced by Kyoto’s courtly culture.
