This event has ended.

2016 marks the 150th anniversary of Kuroda Seiki’s birth. Widely known for his painting entitled Lakeside, Kuroda (1866–1924) contributed greatly to the modernization of the arts in Japan. This exhibition aims to comprehensively look at Kuroda’s artistic achievements through his masterpieces. These include Reading and Portrait of a Woman (Kitchen), which were painted while he was studying abroad, as well as those from after his return to Japan, such as Maiko Girl and Wisdom, Impression, Sentiment. The exhibition also features works that Kuroda could have seen in France and was influenced by, including ones by Raphaël Collin (1850–1916), under whom Kuroda trained, and Jean-François Millet (1814–1875).
