As home schools and private ateliers, private art schools were one characteristic of Kyoto Japanese-style painting (nihonga) that supported the modern Kyoto art world. Various private art schools from Takeuchi Seiho's 'Chikujokai,' Yamamoto Shunkyo's 'Sanaekai,' Nishimura Goun's 'Shinchosha,' Nishiyama Suisho's 'Seikosha,' then later Domoto Insho's 'Tokyusha' and the private art schools of Kikuchi Keigetsu and Nakamura Daizaburo, supported Kyoto art and industry. Here we review the history of the private art schools until the beginnings of WWII.
