Kansai University Library holds over 350 Osaka gadan art.
Osaka gadan art held by Kansai University Library enters on artists such as Kimura Kenkado (1736-1802) and Osaka artists like Ōoka Shunboku (1680-1763) and Nakai Rankо̄ (1766-1830). These are material that shows the Osaka art world in the mid-Edo period.
By making accessible numerous works by Osaka's artists through the archives, we hope that it would lead to a deeper understanding of Japanese art, philosophy, history, and culture from the Edo to the Meiji/Taisho period.
