浮世絵 太田記念美術館(うきよえ おおたきねんびじゅつかん)は、東京都渋谷区にある浮世絵専門の私設美術館である。概要東邦生命保険相互会社会長などの重職を歴任し、実業界の大立者であった5代目太田清蔵(1893年-1977年)のコレクションを基礎に、1980年(昭和55年)1月に開館した。内訳は肉筆浮世絵約500点、浮世絵版画約1万点、浮世絵関係の版本及び骨董品約200点、旧鴻池コレクションの扇面画約900点(内、浮世絵派の作品約60点)、さらに浮世絵研究家の長瀬武郎から寄贈された肉筆画と版画約650点で、総計1万2千点を超える大規模なコレクションは、その後も毎年新収蔵品を加えている。施設概要住所 〒150-0001 東京都渋谷区神宮前一丁目10番10号  開館時間 午前10時30分~午後5時30分(入館は午後5時まで) 休館日毎週月曜日(祝日の場合は翌日)、毎月末展示替え期間、年末年始入館料展示内容により入館料は変わる。団体(10名以上)は1人につき100円引き。特色開館前の1977年(昭和52年)11月から銀座の東邦生命ビル内に仮設された会場でも展示を行っていた。そして、月ごとにテーマを変えた特別展を1年に12回繰返してきている。かつて太田清蔵がボストン美術館で味わった和風の落着いた展示環境が独自に工夫されて当美術館でも採用されている。かつては入口で靴など履物を脱ぎ、用意されているスリッパに履き替えなければならなかったが、2014年12月の改修工事で靴のまま入場できるようになった。 中央に石庭があり、左手の奥には一段高い畳敷きの座敷も用意されている。座敷に上がった観客は、床の間で鑑賞するように膝を落とし、そこに飾られた肉筆画を見上げることになる。主な収蔵品錦絵 「風流うたひ八景」8枚揃 鈴木春信 「出語り図 春駒」 鳥居清長 「五条大橋の牛若丸と弁慶」 勝川春章 「北国五色墨・てっぽう」 喜多川歌麿 「江戸近郊八景之内」8枚揃 歌川広重 「木曽海道六拾九次之内・中津川」 歌川広重 「としよりのよふな若い人だ」 歌川国芳 「人かたまつて人になる」 歌川国芳 「喫煙のマドロスと少女」 団扇絵 小林清親 「三井好 都のにしき5 夏-夜会草の咲く夕べ」 水野年方

  • The Harajuku fashion and famous think that serves as the Museum's Ukiyo-e in the traditional fashion, old Japan that only some people abroad for professional. It seems many coming and much more alien rather than Japanese or English writing.

  • Small museum dedicated to the Ukiyo-e art that is a genre of painting and woodcut popular in 17th-century Japan. Appreciate smaller museums as these allow visitors an immersion and aborting bigger. And this Museum takes its mission seriously, which makes him a super ride enriching. The "floating world" depicted by the ukiyo-e art is fascinating and broadened my insight into Japanese culture. In October 2016, this Museum had a special exhibit of artist Kuniyoshi, one of the exponents of this art form.

  • Worth a visit! Good size for a museum - enough to look at for an hour or so without being overwhelming. Exhibits rotate - we went to the Hokusai exhibit which was well laid out and labelled, and had some really nice pieces.
  • Nice exhibitions which are usually related to Edo period.
  • I found the museum with a search on some wood block print exhibitions. Due to the sensitivity of the prints (paper and ink) the prints are roared every month, at the time I went it was focused on villains. The space was very calming and inviting. The only drawback was only minor the English to explain the stories of each print. This would have given more insight but I enjoyed myself and felt like I had a better appreciation for the prints.
  • Great little museum of woodblock prints.
  • Focused museum, very much worth the visit if you have any interest in Japanese wood block art.
