This retrospective includes the most important works of Kanda Nissho, who died at the early age of 32, and attempts to present the whole story about his art. It is the first solo exhibition of his works to be held in Tokyo for 42 years.
This large-scale retrospective follows the course of Nissho’s artistic development, and incorporates the latest research as well as displaying works by contemporary artists who influenced him.
Kanda Nissho is the artist on whom the character of Yamada Ten’yō in the 2019 NHK morning drama series Natsuzora is modeled. The drama recreates many happenings from Nissho’s life.
