poster for Foujita: A Retrospective – Commemorating the 50th Anniversary of his Death

This event has ended.

Léonard Tsuguharu Foujita (1886-1968)—a leading artist of the Ecole de Paris. Born in 19th-century Japan, Foujita spent about half of his 80 some years in France and eventually took French citizenship and was buried there. In 2018, on the 50th anniversary of his death, a grand retrospective surveying his entire career will be held with the cooperation of art museums in Japan, U.S.A., France, and throughout Europe.
The exhibition will trace Foujita’s development through representative artworks from each stage—“Landscape Paintings,” “Portraits,” “Nudes,” “Religious Paintings,” and so on. Introducing new perspectives, it will close in on the essence of his art. An exhibition rich with highlights, it will feature not only his signature “milky white nudes” and other major works but pieces never seen in Japan or rarely exhibited.
