This event has ended.

In 1930, an exhibition of Japanese art so called "Rome Exhibition" was organized by the Italian government at Palazzo Nazionale delle Esposizioni. Plutocrat Kishichiro Okura, who just succeeded the family business provided enormous funding for this exhibition. A total of 168 nihon-ga paintings by 80 artists from the Taisho to Showa periods were presented, including the masterpiece by Taikan Yokoyama, "Yozakura." Also, the exhibition space was created by carpenters specialized in temple construction to add Japanese sensibility to the entire atmosphere.

This exhibition presents 27 works showcased at the Rome Exhibition from the collection of the Okura Shukokan Museum of Fine Arts. Also on view are the exhibition poster designed by Taikan, as well as related materials from the historical exhibition.
