This event has ended.

In a corridor-shaped gallery streaming with sunlight, around 50 portraits from the Hoki Museum’s collection of some 350 paintings are displayed. These are works by artists who pride themselves on a singular interest in people as subjects. Continuing the artistic attempt to capture the essence of human kind in a tradition which extends since the times of ancient Greece and Rome, here artists are seen to undertake a conversation with their models and reach out to touch human thought and feeling. The museum now invites visitors to come and grasp the messages these artists have imbued in each of their works, brimming with a power that cannot be expressed in print.
