This event has ended.
*Yokosuka Museum of Art is temporarily closed from August 23 (Mon) until further notice.
The exhibition of the Yokosuka Museum of Art’s collection is changed four times a year to introduce the collection from various perspectives. The second exhibition of the collection will introduce a selection of works from the collection that depict the various kinds of kimono that live close to people’s lives.
In addition, one of the exhibition rooms has been designated as the Asai Kan’emon Room to introduce the work of Kanemon Asai (1901-1983), a Western-style painter who had a studio in Taura in Yokosuka City for 20 years after the Second World War. This year’s exhibition features work depicting the fantastic world of the night, in reference to Komako Sakai’s work “Yorikuma”, which is being held at the same time as the exhibition. Rooms 6 and 7 feature human figures in drawings. Exhibition Room 8 features work by the Japanese painter Chikuhaku Suzuki (1918-2020), including works newly acquired last year.
