About Gallery Murakoshi
Gallery Murakoshi, since its establishment in1956 at the 8 chome of Namiki-dori Ginza, for more than 60 years, have been a commercial gallery dealing with modern and contemporary Japanese style paintings. The founder Noburu Murakoshi was born in Yokohama, studied and practiced at a long established art dealer of Edo period paintings and calligraphy. After the WW2, Noburu Murakoshi dealt with fine Japanese artists, such as Kobayashi Kokei, Ogura Yuki, Yamamoto Kyujin, Takayama Tatsuo. At the same time, he actively introduced young talented artists of his generation to the world, such as Yokoyama Misao, Ishimoto Sho, Kayama Matazo and Hirayama Ikuo. What these artists have in common is that their techniques lies on the knowledge of the classics.
In 2005, Mihoko Sakurai, the daughter of Noburu Murakoshi, inherited the gallery, and since, Gallery Murakoshi has been dealing with various types of paintings as well as young contemporary artists.
