ABSTRACT

In 1944, the <Battleship-Dedicated Imperial Art Academy Art Exhibition> and the <Army-Dedicated Imperial Art Academy Art Exhibition> held at the Tokyo Imperial Household Museum suggested that the museum performed the function of a war propaganda institution. In 1938, after the main building of the Tokyo Imperial Household Museum had been built and opened, what was formerly a history museum changed to an art museum, and gradually began to take on the color of the situation at the time, finally serving as a war propaganda institution. The fact that the department store was affected by the shortage of materials and its function as a war propaganda agency was damaged, the deterioration of the war situation seem to have worked. However, in terms of the above situation, it is impossible to rule out the potential involvement of the active intention of the Tokyo Imperial Household Museum, whose function had deteriorated due to the perception of being an unnecessary institution, with a decreasing audience number.
