Fukutomi Taro is well-known as the Showa Cabaret King, but he was also a first-class collector of the fine arts. He was particularly fond of bijin-ga, which have been the focus of exhibitions held around Japan so far. However, the Fukutomi Taro Collection contains a diverse range of works, including Western-style paintings from the early Meiji Era, as well as genre paintings and depictions of war that convey the atmosphere of their day. This exhibition is the first ever attempt to give a fully-rounded view of the collection, the depth and breadth of which is certainly conveyed by its content. More than 80 Nihonga and Western-style works are on display, including many masterpieces.
