Ends in 36 days

Tamako Kataoka continued to work on her “Expressions” series throughout her lifetime, depicting various historical figures such as military commanders of the Sengoku period (1467-1603), Zen Buddhist monks, and Ukiyo-e painters. Painted in the styles mimicking that which would have been customary during the actual lifetime of each subject, the expressions themselves are based on Kataoka’s impressions of what these individuals would do were they to be alive in the present day. This exhibition focuses on this series, presenting works held in the Museum of Modern Art, Kamakura & Hayama collection.
