Description
Kokuga-kai (National Painting Association) was founded in Kyoto in 1918 by Japanese-style painters Shiho Sakakibara, Chikukyo Ono, Bakusen Tsuchida, Kagaku Murakami, Banka Nonagase, and Hako Irie. It was founded on the principle that artists should have complete freedom of expression. In 1925 a Western-style painting section was added and in 1928 all the Japanese-style painters withdrew. The organization also has print, sculpture, craft and photography sections and is still active.
