Tetsu Fusen: A Retrospective
- 40th Anniversary of His Death

July 1 (Saturday) - August 27 (Sunday), 2017

Tetsu Fusen is a Japanese-style painter who made his debut when he was selected for the 1st Tei-ten (Japan Art Academy Exhibition) in 1919. He was later showing in many other exhibitions and acclaimed widely. After the World War II, he distanced himself from the art world, remaining aloof and painting at his home in Nara up until the age of 84. This is the first retrospective of his works to be held in Tokyo, and the first exhibition in 21 years. Centering on Fusen’s most important and newly discovered works, this exhibition showcases a total of approximately 120 works, and explores the charms of this unique artist.
