About the Exhibition

KAZUKI Yasuo (1911-1974) established an unshakeable reputation for himself in the world of post-war yōga(western-style) painting with his Siberia Series, depicting his experiences in the Pacific War and his internment in a Siberian POW (prisoner of war) camp. Including all 57 pieces from that series, this exhibition displays around 150 Kazuki’s works in chronological order, from work made at Tokyo School of Fine Arts through to his last years. Presenting his works from the Siberia Series, often interpreted as an epic poem, alongside other works of his from the same time, provides a chance to see them in a new light; in introducing the artist’s oeuvre as a whole, we reveal a multifaceted charm that has previously been hidden behind the image of 'the Siberian painter'.
