Osaka City Museum of Fine Arts opened in 1936 as the third public(prefectural or municipal)art museum in Japan, following Tokyo and Kyoto. Built up over many years, the collection is truly varied and numbers over 8,500 pieces of Japanese and Chinese painting, calligraphy, sculpture, and craft that span from BCE to modern times. Osaka City Museum of Fine Arts upcoming temporary closure for large-scale renovation beginning in fall of 2022 allowed an opportunity to exhibit rare masterpieces that are rarely on view together in a single show even in their own space, and this occasion marks the first time they will be exhibited outside of the institution.
