Announcing the Launch of MEGURU Online
In 2021, MEGURU launched its internet-based auction, "MEGURU Online", which, from late May 2022, will be available in English. In addition, during the same month, the Japanese Art Auction MEGURU's bid range will be modified and part of its lots will be allotted to MEGURU Online.

This MEGURU offers works by the masters of Bijin-ga, such as Kaburaki Kiyokata, Uemura Shoen, Ito Shinsui and Ito Shoha. Further highlights include sculptures and works by contemporary artists such as Yachida Kei.
This MEGURU offers an exclusive offering of the Siberian prisoner and painter, Kazuki Yasuo's landscape and still-life paintings.
