This event has ended.

Mr Bunsai Ioki (1863–1906) was born in Mito at the end of the Tokugawa shogunate as the son of a samurai from the Mito clan. He died at the early age of 43 in Nikko as a western-style artist of the Meiji period. He is well known among foreign art lovers as a leading Japanese watercolorist who left a body of pioneering botanical art. He also mentored the famous artist Hoan Kosugi. To mark the 100th anniversary of his death in 2006, this exhibition presents more than 100 examples taken from his total body of work, including oil portraits, botanical watercolours and scenes of Nikko Toshogu shrine, the mausoleum of shogun Ieyasu Tokugawa.
