Fear in Painting

Kyoko Nakano, a scholar of German literature published a book in 2007 titled “Kowaie” (Fear in Painting). Having "fear" as its key theme, it focuses on many masterpieces from the history of Western Art, and carefully analyzes the appealing points of these famous pieces. It became a best seller and received a great response of appraisal from many. As the 10th anniversary of the books first publication, and with ‘fear’ as its basis, the exhibition includes carefully selected masterpieces from the series which are displayed in themes. The exhibits include those which the guests will naturally feel the fear just by experiencing them, and some exhibits will require the understanding of the historical background and the situation to feel the fear. This is an expedition which will surely be one that you cannot experience anywhere else.
