［2022 Winter］Collection Room Special Display: Art in East Asia and Modern Kyoto
Venue [ Main Building（South Wing）1F ]
About the Exhibition
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.
From the late Meiji Period onward, many Japanese and Western-style paintings featured East Asian themes, such as landscapes and figures from China and Korea. This can be attributed to the fact that many Japanese painters went to China to study in the modern era, as well as to Japan’s active expansion into Asia. Information on East Asian antiquities also became more widely available, and the region became the focus of attention as the origin of Japanese art. Featuring Japanese and Western paintings from Kyoto based on the theme of East Asia, the winter exhibition will explore the gaze of modern Japanese artists toward East Asia.
