Keiyu Nishimura (1909-2000) who was born in Kyowa-cho, showcasing permanent exhibition of his works. Housing over 5,500 artworks including many of Nishimura’s pieces, it presents different exhibitions under seasonal themes.

Nishimura’s talent was flourished after his flight to Paris, found by an art dealership of Picasso, Kahnweiler. As he was 42 years old in 1951, he visited Paris to set his base there, and traveled around the Europe to draw many landscapes. Among them, his paintings drawn grand view of mountains such as Alps became one of his lifelong motif which he kept painted over again until his later years.

Nishimura’s painting is attractive with his dynamic composition and unique balance depicted by refined lines and colors. His vibrant artwork evokes people’s hearts. He has established such his style in the 70’s in Paris and later in Japan, and gained a certain reputation. As you see his works of Niseko mountains in Kyowa-cho where he has painted, you can view the same landscape in a different way.

Nishimura’s paintings can be viewed at Keiyu Nishimura Museum of Art located in Arai Memorial Museum of Art in Iwanai-cho. You can enjoy touring other museums such as a literary legend Arishima Takeo Memorial Museum in Niseko-cho, an artist and painting teacher of Nishimura, Kida Kinjiro Museum of Art in Iwanai-cho, and a Nishimura’s friend Shu Ogawara Museum of Art in Kutchan-cho.
