The Eisei Bunko Foundation and the Eisei Bunko Museum were established in 1950 by 16th-generation family head Hosokawa Moritatsu, with the objective of preserving for future generations the legacy of the cultural treasures of the Hosokawa family, lords of the former Kumamoto domain.
This exhibition presents renowned works from the Eisei Bunko collection, along with a selection of objects related to the Hosokawa family. In addition to highlighting the history of the Hosokawa family and the transmission of traditional Japanese culture, it also offers insight into the personal character and connoisseurship of Hosokawa Moritatsu, one of the leading art collectors of modern Japan.
