Images from the Exhibit
Ueno Riichi (1848–1919), also known by the sobriquet Yūchiku, was renowned both as president of the newspaper company Osaka Asahi Shimbun (today's Asahi Shimbun) and as a collector of early Japanese and Chinese art. In 1970, his son Seiichi founded the Ueno Memorial Foundation of the Study of Buddhist Art. This exhibition, in celebration of the Foundation's fiftieth anniversary, features masterworks of Chinese calligraphy and painting together with selected works of Japan art amassed by Ueno Riichi.
