The Age of Kuroda Seiki and Kishida Ryusei
This event has ended.
Returning from France in 1893, Seiki Kuroda altered the direction of Western painting in Japan. He formed a group called "Hakuba-kai" with other artists such as Takeji Fujishima and Saburosuke Okada. Their style, which was represented by lively colors and swift brush strokes, was called "shin-pa (new school)," and led the direction of later Western paintings in Japan. They underwent Romanticism and Impressionism in the Meiji era, and emphasized individualities in the Taisho era.
In this exhibition, 60 works of art from the collection of Pola Museum of Art will be shown to introduce the world of art in the Meiji and Taisho era.
