Ends in 6 days
Closed Today (Monday)

*This Exhibition is temporarily closed from August 23 (Mon) to September 30 (Thu).

The Museum has been acquiring Kyoto modern art since its inauguration in 1933, and currently has holdings of over 3,800 artworks comprised of a core of Japanese paintings along with Western style paintings, sculpture, prints, crafts, and calligraphy.
The Museum is particularly proud of its highly regarded collection of paintings by Meiji and Showa period Kyoto artists. Introducing paintings with seasonal themes in tandem with the changing seasons, the Museum gives viewers a rich sense of the seasons in Kyoto.
A feeling of summer in the early Showa period can be gleaned from works such as Kitano Tsunetomi Sisters of a Merchant Family, depicting a hot summer evening conversation in a garden, and Showa period oil painter Nakamura Ken-ichi’s The Seto Inland Sea of Japan.
