The current buildings of the Kyoto Imperial Palace were constructed in 1855, when several of the most eminent Japanese painters of the time were commissioned to create its interior panel paintings. These precious works serve as time capsules of Kyoto's nineteenth-century painting scene and vividly unfold the many stories of this art scene.
