Kishida Riusei: A Retrospective

Kishida Riusei: A Retrospective

Saturday, August 31 - Sunday, October 20, 2019

Riusei Kishida (1891-1929) became aware of the works of artists referred to as Post-Impressionists, such as Van Gogh and Matisse, while studying at the Aoibashi Yoga Kenkyujo run by the Hakuba group led by Kuroda Seiki, and produced avant-garde oil paintings with intense colors and brush strokes as a way to create his own style of art. He continued to explore the art of painting using his own values as his yardstick, and he had a tremendous impact on young artists. This exhibition is a chance to enjoy the art of Riusei Kishida, a towering figure in modern Japanese history. It includes portraits, still lifes, landscapes, and of course pictures of Reiko.
