The seven hundred paintings, which have been collected by Kansai University Library and other institutions, were taken the photographs and the data of these paintings were recorded in the cards. Moreover, the researches of the documents, which have been collected at some universities, for example, Kyoto Institute of Technology, were done by the investigators.
