Since its inauguration, the Museum has continued adding to its collection of Modern Period Kyoto Art. The result is a collection of over 3,600 works including nihonga, Western style painting, sculpture, prints, crafts, and calligraphy. The collection of modern nihonga by Kyoto artists active from the Meiji Period through the Showa Period is particularly strong. The excellent collection is prized by the Museum and highly regarded. On the occasion of the renovation and reopening, the Museum is newly establishing a Collection Room to display works from the permanent collection. A large number of works are to be introduced each season, including well-known paintings that feature seasonal beauty.

Kikuchi Hobun, Uemura Shoen, Takeuchi Seiho, and Konoshima Okoku are representative artists of the museum collection whose works will be shown in rotation along with the seasons. Kikuchi Hobun’s much admired Spring Evening Frosty Morning might be seen at the time when a flurry of cherry blossoms drifts down to the Lake Biwa canal in Okazaki Park. During the summer Gion Festival season, Uemura Shoen’s Waiting for the Moon might be on view. When Arashiyama is beautifully covered with autumn leaves, Takeuchi Seiho’s Posing for the First Time, a designated Important Cultural Property, would be exhibited. Scenes of animals in the snow, such as Konoshima Okoku’s Winter Moon will be displayed in winter.
The annual schedule of works selected for exhibition in the Collection Room will be announced in advance so that people can plan their trips to Kyoto accordingly. The Kyoto City KYOCERA Museum of Art will become a landmark attraction to enjoy the seasons in Kyoto.
