The Fukuda Collection All Stars

Saga-Arashiyama: In spring the cherry blossoms dance in the wind; in autumn, the land is painted in red and gold.
Since ancient times, the Saga-Arashiyama area has been loved by nobles and cultured people, and served as a source of inspiration for outstanding art. In October 2019, this wellspring of culture will become home to the Fukuda Art Museum.
Based on the concept of “Striving to Create a Museum That Lasts for 100 Years,” our museum is intended to convey to the next generation the Japanese culture that has come down to us from previous eras, and to contribute to its further development.
To commemorate the grand opening of the museum, we are unveiling all at once a vast collection of our most prized pieces: from Edo Period works such as those of the Rinpa school of Tawaraya Sotatsu and Ogata Korin (1658–1716), the Kano school of Kano Sanraku (1559-1635) and Kano Tanyu (1602–1674), and the Maruyama-Shijo school of Maruyama Okyo (1733–1795), Nagasawa Rosetsu (1754–1799), and Goshun (1752–1811), to works of Meiji and later by such artists as Takeuchi Seiho (1864–1942) and Uemura Shoen (1895–1949).

First Time Shown to the Public! And Now the Elusive Collection at Last!

Particularly impressive must-see works are Kano Tanyu’s Dragon and Clouds and Konoshima Okoku’s Umayaji no Haru (Spring of a Main Road) (unveiled 78 years ago and then lost) and Hashimoto Kansetsu’s Emperor Godaigo.
