On October 8, the special exhibition titled ‘Ishin no yōgaka Kawamura Kiyoo’ opened at the Edo-Tokyo Museum (until December 2). It examined achievements of KAWAMURA Kiyoo, who produced Japanese-style yōga paintings rooted in Edo culture while studying authentic oil painting techniques abroad. The exhibition consisted of a vast amount of materials donated to the museum by his bereaved family, and also included his works from outside of Japan, such as a painting titled ‘Kenkoku (Founding of the Nation)’ in the collection of the Musée d’Orsay, France. The exhibition travelled to the Shizuoka Prefectural Museum of Art (February 9 – March 27, 2013). (Japanese)
