Although he was a well-known painter of beautiful women, Kiyokata got inspiration for his painting from the beauties of nature rather than women’s beauties. Above all, he love to paint summer features: indigo-dyeing yukata, windchimes, morning-glory and so on.
The exhibition shows works and materials related with summer features of the good old days.
Elementary and Junior High School Students are free of charge.
