The World of Kazuhiro Kuno
Ends in 77 days
After graduating from Musashino Art School (now Musashino Art University), Kazuhiro Kuno (born in 1938) studied abroad as a research student at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris. His experience of traveling to Europe, where he encountered many historical masterpieces, had a great influence on his subsequent painting career.
In particular, he had a fateful encounter with the work of Giotto di Bondone at the Louvre, where he immersed himself in tempera copying and spent time studying the technique. Since his return to Japan, Kuno has held many solo exhibitions, as well as exhibitions such as the Rikki Exhibition, the Yasui Award Exhibition, and the Japan Outstanding Works of Art Exhibition, and has been active at the forefront of the contemporary Western-style painting world, winning the Kawakita Rimmyo Award at the Ryoyonome Exhibition in 1999.
This exhibition brings together over 50 of his oil paintings, drawings, and sculptures of portraits, stills, landscapes, and other subjects.
