The last three directors were experts in Japanese art history, and the Chiba City Museum of Art has planned many exhibitions with Edo painting as the central theme.
There are too many famous ukiyo-e artists here, and the collection can be confirmed on the official website.
You are familiar with the “Soma no kunai-ri” by Kuniyoshi Kogawa, who appeared in “Oikawabata Detective Agency”, right?

Kokuyoshi Kogawa was a powerful and popular painter at the end of the Makuhari period, and was known as the “Mushi Ekikuniyoshi”.
The story of “Soma no kunai-ri” is based on the “Tadayoshi no yori”, and is about the duel between Otaku Koukoku, the oldest family member of Minamoto Yorishin, and Taki Yagyuhime, the daughter of Taira Shogun, who uses magic.
Originally, Takiyakushiki used demon magic to control a large number of skeletons (hungry Calvary), but Kokuyo Kogawa depicted it as a giant skeleton, which is very accurate from the anatomical point of view and quite impressive from the artistic point of view.
