Current Exhibition

Animal Art Museum

2022.07.16 - 2022.10.10

Animals often appear in Japanese painting.
The theme that many painters have tackled since ancient times has been how to depict moving creatures by observing wild animals that live close at hand, such as deer and raccoon dogs, as well as domestic animals that have supported people's lives as livestock, such as cows and horses.
This exhibition introduces a variety of animal paintings, including the thoughts of painters who were fascinated by animals and the background to their work.
