The Murayama Collection: "Paintings by Artists Related to the Murayama Family"

Ryohei Murayama (1850-1933), one of the founders of the Asahi Shinbun newspaper, is known for his collection of Japanese and Oriental antiques, including swords, tea ceremony utensils, and Buddhist art. The late Michiko Murayama (1920-2020), who deeply wanted the Murayama collection to be witnessed by upcoming generations, in 2020 bequeathed all of the Murayama family's former collection, mostly works that had been deposited, to the museum. During this exhibition we are going to introduce you to a wide selection of works by artists associated with the Murayama family, presenting you 1,600 works in total. Through this donation, we were able to find out that the Murayama collection includes not only antiques but also modern Japanese paintings that have never been shown to the public before. Along with the restoration process and related materials, the exhibition will feature about 50 works, mainly modern works associated with the Murayama family, as well as early modern paintings.
