Among the highlights of the collection are literati paintings by URAKAMI Gyokudo and YOSA Buson, other paintings from the Edo period (1600-1868), works by Usen Ogawa, a leader of modern Japanese-style paintings, and those by Morikazu Kumagai and Kokuta Suda who kept company with Kimura. Chinaware, craftwork, Buddhist images from China and Japan, and archeological artifacts are also included, reflecting the collector's wide interest.
These works are displayed in the Teizo Kimura Collection Room and in some of the special exhibitions. (Inventory #: 130339)
