This event has ended.
Seiji Togo (1897 - 1978), who was well-known for his depictions of the beauty of modern women (“Seiji Beauties”), lived in France for seven years from the age of 24, and from the age of 63 travelled overseas almost every year. In this exhibition, we consider internationality that originated from Japan and France to be one of Togo’s core qualities, and follow in the footsteps of Togo, who continued to be deeply interested in foreign countries throughout his life, through the works that were inspired by the things he saw on his travels and the things he brought home. From the perspective of “Journey” by Togo, who was called a modern boy, we will introduce around 140 collections that have had few opportunities to be displayed until now, such as oil paintings, sketches, sculptures, designs, photographic materials, as well as Togo’s collected items. Please enjoy a journey around the world from Paris to the Sahara Desert, through the curiosity-filled eyes of Togo.
