Kiyokata was an admirer of the novelist, Izumi Kyōka and had a close relationship with him. Undoubtedly, a certain part of Kiyokata’s art is influenced by Kyōka’s literary world. There are many illustrations, frontispieces, and cover designs for Kyōka’s books. What is more, there are some masterpieces of paintings such as “Chūmon-chō” based on his novel.
Commemorating the 120th anniversary of the encounter of two artists, the exhibition shows Kiyokata’s works and illustrations related with Kyōka and his literary world.
