Famous Treasures of the Hosokawa Family across History: Limited-Time Unveiling of the National Treasure, the “Hosokawa Mirror”

Friday, September 18 to Sunday, November 8, 2020

Flyer imageIt is our pleasure to present the exhibition of 70th anniversary of Eisei Bunko Museum, Famous Treasures of the Hosokawa Family across History: Limited-Time Unveiling of the National Treasure, the “Hosokawa Mirror”.
The Eisei Bunko Museum is located in a corner of Tokyo's Mejirodai neighborhood, a quiet section of Bunkyo City. It was established by Hosokawa Moritatsu, the sixteenth head of the Hosokawa family, in order to preserve and study various artworks, crafts, and historical documents that have been handed down through the Hosokawa family, the former feudal rulers of Kumamoto. It houses approximately 94,000 precious cultural assets, including numerous national treasures and important cultural properties. The collection can be broadly divided into items from the family’s days as feudal rulers, which tend to be highly functional in nature, and works of fine art accumulated by Moritatsu in modern times.
This year, 2020, marks the seventieth anniversary of Eisei Bunko. To commemorate this milestone year, the national treasure known as the “Hosokawa Mirror,” which has not been on display for about a decade, will be unveiled for a limited time only. The magnificent exhibition includes not only the gorgeous furnishings of the nobility passed down by the Hosokawa family along with early-modern paintings by the commissioned artists who served them, but also Oriental artworks from Moritatsu’s collection that have been designated as national treasures and important cultural properties, modern Japanese paintings, and paintings by the renowned swordsman and philosopher Miyamoto Musashi (1584-1645). Don’t miss this chance to see the famous treasures of the Hosokawa family.
