"The 125th Anniversary -Unknown Yumeji Takehisa" Exhibition
This event has ended.
This year marks the 125th anniversary of the birth of Yumeji Takehisa (1884-1934). From the Meiji through to the Showa period, Yumeji rushed through 49 years of his life, making an imprint on the cultural realm as both painter and poet.
While Yumeji harnessed his talent as an artist, it's said that he was also busy with his romantic life, and that he traveled to many places and lived a cosmopolitan life. Since his passing, Yumeji has been introduced in various ways through exhibitions and books. However, there are still many previously unexhibited works and unknown sides to this singular figure, a source of unending fascination for his audience.
Celebrating the 125th anniversary of his birth, this exhibition reexamines Yumeji's oeuvre from various perspectives, while also introducing the "real" Yumeji through the presentation of his previously unexhibited work.
