About Contemporary Nihonga
This museum collects contemporary Nihonga works from Japanese painters born since the start of the Showa era (1926). Nihonga is a term and concept that was created in response to Western painting (or "seiyoga"), which made its way to Japan in the Meiji era (beginning 1868) and after. Prior to that, the concept of Nihonga did not exist, and the styles of Japanese painting were divided into schools (the Kano school, the Maruyama-Shijo school, Yamato-e, and others). Since the arrival in Japan of Western painting in the Meiji era, the schools have been blended and fused, while elements of Western painting have also been adopted, in the development of Nihonga. Today, the term "Nihonga" can refer to both traditional Japanese painting, and new styles of painting that incorporate Western painting methods while carrying on the traditional techniques of Japanese painting. Although there is no set style of painting called Nihonga, the concept is widely known for paintings on base materials including wood, hemp, silk, and paper, with coloring materials such as mineral pigments and other natural colorants that are bound with glue.

現代日本画について
当館は、昭和以降(1926 年~)に生まれた日本画家による現代日本画を収集しています。
日本画は、明治以降(1868 年~)に入ってきた西洋画に対して作られた言葉・概念です。それ以前は、日本画の概念はなく、様式として各流派(狩野派、円山・四条派、大和絵など)に別れていました。西洋画が入ってきた明治以降、各流派は折衷、混ざり合いながら西洋画の要素も取り入れて、日本画は発展してきました。
現在の日本画は、伝統的な日本の絵画を総称する意味と、伝統的な日本の絵画技法を継承しつつも西洋画法を取り入れた新しい絵画を総称する意味があります。
日本画という特定の絵画様式はありませんが、使用される基底材には板、麻、絹、紙などがあり、使用される絵の具に、岩絵の具等の天然の顔料を膠で接着させて描く絵画として、広く知られています。
