Kosçak Yamada and Art
This event has ended.
Three hundred paintings, prints, and other items related to the life and work of Kosçak Yamada (1886-1965), Japan’s first major composer. From an early age Yamada had an interest in not just music but also theater and art. He studied in Berlin and had friendly exchanges with several artists over the course of his lifetime. Works on display include issues of “Uta to Ongaku” (Poetry and Music), a magazine he edited with Hakushu Kitahara, and covers for his musical scores with artwork by Yumeji Takehisa and Koshiro Onchi. Some of the exhibited items will be alternated over the course of the exhibition.
