Legendary Artists of Japanese Western Painting : The Centennial of the Nika Exhibition

Nika Exhibition, one of the three major art exhibitions that displays works by artists in Japan, celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2015. In this special exhibition held in commemoration of its centennial anniversary, the Nika Association’s progression through time is traced in an attempt to bring its significance in the modern and contemporary Japanese history of art to the fore.

This is an extremely rare chance to see a vast collection of masterpieces by Japan’s legendary Western-style painters and sculptors who came to be known from the Nika exhibition. The exhibition features about 120 pieces of especially significant artworks by prominent artists such as Ryusei Kishida, Yuzo Saeki, Narashige Koide, Shoji Sekine, Harue Koga, Hanjiro Sakamoto, Tsuguharu Foujita, Shunsuke Matsumoto, and Seiji Togo, not to mention Henri Matisse and other European masters.
