Kitayama Seitaro and Artists in the Taisho Era

September 17 - November 6, 2016

Introducing Seitaro Kitayama, promoter, publisher, and the pioneer of Japanese animation as our starting point, this exhibition will examine Taisho-era (1912-1926), Japan’s enthusiastic interest in Western art, as well as the avant-garde trends in Japanese modern art that were affected by that interest. Around 130 works of various mediums, such as oil painting and sculpture, will be on display, including the pieces from Western masters, the young artists of the time wished to see, as well as the art they created under the influence of those works.
