私たちが知らない江戸「日本を愛した19世紀の米国人画家」が描いた、息遣いすら感じる美しき風景:DDN JAPAN

なんだこの生々しさ

僕らが知る “江戸” とは違う風景。19世紀の米国人画家 ロバート・フレデリック・ブラム (Robert Frederick Blum) は、1876年「フィラデルフィア万博」で日本文化に衝撃を受け、いつかその地を踏むことを夢に抱いた

14年後の1890年、上野で開催された「第三回・国内勧業博覧会」に招待されたことを機に、その後3年間に渡って、彼の目を奪った江戸の香りが色濃く残る日本の景色を描き続けることになる

Chefchaouen, a small town in northern Morocco, has a rich history, beautiful natural surroundings and wonderful architecture, but what it’s most famous for are the striking and vivid blue walls of many of the buildings in its “old town” sector, or medina.

The maze-like medina sector, like those of most of the other towns in the area, features white-washed buildings with a fusion of Spanish and Moorish architecture. The brilliantly blue walls, however, seem to be unique to Chefchaouen. They are said to have been introduced to the town by Jewish refugees in 1930, who considered blue to symbolize the sky and heaven. The color caught on, and now many also believe that the blue walls serve to repel mosquitoes as well (mosquitoes dislike clear and moving water).

Whatever the reason, the town’s blue walls attract visitors who love to wander the town’s narrow streets and snap some beautiful photos.
