The 150th Anniversary of his Birth: Yokoyama Taikan
A great retrospective exhibition of precious masterpieces of Yokoyama Taikan
A great retrospective exhibition “The 150th Anniversary of his Birth: Yokoyama Taikan” will be held from April 13 to May 27, 2018.
Yokoyama Taikan (1868-1958) is a top artist of modern Japanese painting, known for having painted over 1,500 pictures of Mount Fuji and Metempsychosis, a more than forty-meter long sumi ink scroll. This is a major retrospective commemorating the 150th anniversary of his birth.
“A painting has to be painted persistently with your heart.” “A painting reflects the painter himself.” Such remarks may give the impression of a very serious-minded person, but Taikan also had a highly adventurous spirit and a playful mind. In his paintings, he exerted his ingenuity to surprise people and made unremitting efforts to pioneer pictorial representation.
So as to bring such an image of this artist to light, while paying due attention to Taikan’s young days, presented in this exhibition is a choice selection of approximately ninety works. Not only are there must-see materpieces by Taikan but also newly discovered works, through which you will be able to uncover the charms of Taikan anew.
