Realism of Life: Masterpieces of Nihonga

The schedule could be changed to prevent the further spreading of COVID-19. We apologize for any inconvenience caused, and seek your kind understanding and cooperation.
 
“Nihonga (Japanese-style painting)” has evolved together with the modernization of Japan. We have heretofore featured distinctive nihonga artists including KATAOKA Tamako, whose first solo exhibition was held at our museum, from viewpoints of our own. Presented here are approximately 60 masterworks by innovators of Japanese-style painting such as YASUDA Yukihiko, YAMAGUCHI Hoshun, FUKUDA Toyoshiro, UEMURA Shoko, SHOJI Fuku, ASAKURA Setsu, SENJU Hiroshi, and UCHIDA Aguri, through which the locus of their quest for materials and themes are explored together with the diversity and profundity of their expressions.

These works by the Irish-born painter Francis Bacon (1909-1992) and related materials are being shown in Japan for the first time. They were given to Barry Joule, who was closely involved with Bacon during his lifetime, just before Bacon died and their exhibition and acquisition by a number of museums in various countries in recent years have been talked about a lot. Carefully selected oil paintings of the 1930s, drawings, photographs, works drawn in books, and other rare materials enable you to explore the secrets of the work by this master of the twentieth century.

From Museum CollectionBritish and Irish Art — Depicted stories

The schedule could be changed to prevent the further spreading of COVID-19. We apologize for any inconvenience caused, and seek your kind understanding and cooperation.
 
England and Ireland have enjoyed co-prosperity within the British Isles. Artists have lyrically represented the sublimity of nature and the workings of human beings while respecting each other’s culture. In conjunction with the Francis Bacon exhibition, the arts from the two countries Bacon lived in are introduced. There are works by Henry Moore, who led abstract expressions; William Blake and Richard Hamilton, who treated literature as their subject; Louis le Brocquy, etc.
