Works in the pre-Meiji Era include works by legendary artists such as Soga Shohaku, Ogata Kenzan, Enku, Sengai Gibon and Katsushika Hokusai.
Works by eight prominent contemporary Japanese artists: Rinko Kawauchi, Tomoko Konoike, Shiriagari Kotobuki, Kishio Suga, Koji Tanada, Tsuyoshi Tane, Akira Minagawa and Tadanori Yokoo will be on display alongside the classic exhibits.
