This event has ended.

The expression of the human body in Japanese painting has changed greatly since the Meiji period (1968-1912) due to encounters with Western art, and it is paintings that depict women that have transformed most dramatically. This exhibition will present around 30 paintings of women produced during the Meiji era and thereafter. They are divided across three themes: “form,” which focuses on the beauty of women’s bodies, “reality,” where the aim of the painter appears to be the depiction of actual women, and “dream,” where idealistic expressions of imaginary woman dominate.
