In cooperation with The Imperial Household Agency

    Around 100 years ago, during the Taisho to early Showa periods, selected artists of various divisions created exquisite gifts to celebrate the auspicious events of the Imperial Household. Among them were nationwide-scale art projects with a large number of artists participating, though few people know about these projects today. Once these art works were presented to the Imperial Household, they were placed within their palaces and rarely viewed by the general public.
    The Imperial Household has promoted and passed down Japanese culture from ancient times, and since the modern era, its members have contributed to art promotion by visiting exhibitions and purchasing displayed art works, and commissioning works to decorate the interiors of Imperial palaces. Works created as gifts celebrating auspicious Imperial events were considered as the utmost honor for artists, and were also considered as a cultural policy to succeed and promote traditional artistic techniques. During the Taisho period, works created by artists of various divisions from areas throughout the entire country, directed by the 5th principle of the Tokyo Fine Arts School, Masaki Naohiko(1862- 1940), were considered as the top art works of this era. In this exhibition we will introduce works that still exist within the Imperial Household Agency, along with materials related to their production.
    This exhibition is held in commemoration of the 130th anniversary of the Tokyo University of the Arts, which has succeeded the Tokyo Fine Arts School, and will also exhibit many master works of artists related to the school within the Imperial Household collection. We hope our visitors will enjoy the quintessence of these cultural projects supported by the Imperial Household 100 years ago, including works that will be displayed outside of the Imperial Palace for the first time since they were presented to the Emperor and Empress of the time.

This exhibition will showcase more than 50 beautiful women paintings (bijinga) from the collection of Tokyo University of the Arts and other institutions in Japan. This exhibition also commemorates the accomplishment of conservation project of “Jo-no-mai (Dance Performed in Noh Play” by Shoen Uemura which is a masterpiece of beautiful women paintings in the modern period and it will be displayed for the first time after its restoration.
Tracing the roots of beautiful women paintings in genre paintings and ukiyo-e in the Edo period, this exhibition oversees how beautiful women paintings expanded in Tokyo and western Japan from late “19th century to early 20th century. The exhibition also introduces masterpieces by notable painters such as Kiyokata Kaburaki, Keigetus Kikuchi and Bausen Tsuchida with other artists, Seien Shima, Shoen Ikeda (both two are called “san-en”with Shoen Uemura) and graduates of Tokyo University of the Arts.
