[2022 Spring] Collection Room: Picturesque Kyoto
Venue [ Main Building（South Wing）1F ]
The Museum Collection currently consists of approximately 4,000 works of Kyoto modern art comprising Japanese paintings, Western-style paintings, sculpture, prints, crafts, and calligraphy. In particular, the Collection includes masterpieces representative of Japanese painting made by Kyoto artists between the Meiji and Showa periods, making it one of the leading collections of such works in Japan.
Kyoto has long been the center of Japanese culture and has its own unique character in terms of scenery, climate and customs, which have been preserved and nurtured by the inhabitants of Kyoto. This culture can also be observed in paintings, and the fascinating image of Kyoto has been conveyed in various painters’ works, from Rakuchū Rakugai Zu in ancient times through to the modern and contemporary period. Comprising timeless depictions of temples and shrines, nature, cityscapes undergoing modernization, and an ambience that remains today, this exhibition will introduce “Picturesque Kyoto” through the Museum Collection.
