Kamakura City Kaburaki Kiyotaka Memorial Art Museum

Kamakura City Kaburaki Kiyotaka Memorial Art Museum

The museum was built on the site of the former residence of Yukinoshita Kamakura, the demise of the painter Kiyokata Kaburagi, a master of modern Japanese painting. A Japanese-style building has a neat appearance in a quiet residential area of the ancient city of Kamakura.

Kiyokata Kaburagi was born in Kanda, Tokyo in the 11th year of the Meiji era. He grew up familiar with literary arts from an early age, and his painting business began with an illustrator. Later, he turned to hand-painted paintings, and his works were drawn with the main themes of literature such as the pure and graceful female figure, lively life of the common people, portraits, and the literary works such as Ichiyo Higuchi and Kyoka Izumi. You can feel the gaze of empathy and charity. I have been associated with Kamakura since I settled in Zaimokuza in 1946. In 1954, from the year of receiving the Order of Culture, I opened a painting room here in Yukinoshita and spent the time until I died in 1972 at the age of 93. In his later years, Kiyokata called himself "playing with the citizens' style" and worked on many works on the subject of ordinary people's lives. He has left many essays in Japanese paintings full of emotion and elegant writing style.

In 1994, the bereaved family donated works of art, materials, and land and buildings to Kamakura City with the intention of passing on the place of their painting and creation to future generations. In response to this, it opened as a memorial museum in April 1998. We hope that all visitors will have a relaxing time while remembering Kiyokata's art and life.
