Nihonga artist and one of the masters of the bijin-ga (beautiful lady) genre Kiyokata Kaburaki (1878-1972) has recently enjoyed rediscovery and renewed acclaim. The height of Kaburaki’s popularity was during the late Meiji and early Taisho periods. During this time, his rival in the bijin-ga genre and friend was the also popular Eiho HIrezaki. This exhibition showcases the beautiful women of the Meiji period depicted by both bijin-ga masters.
