A Commemorative Exhibition Celebrating 80 Years Since the Inauguration of the Kyoto Municipal Museum of Art
Drawings for Nihonga: The Preparatory Drawings and Sketches of Takeuchi Seiho

October 19 (Saturday) -December 1 (Sunday)

 

 

In nihonga, preparatory drawings allow us to see the forms of the process of trial and error that artists go through in order to arrive at a completed picture. Most are without color and instead utilize the drawn line from which the special qualities of the painter’s picture manifests. In this exhibition, through the preparatory drawings and sketches of Kyoto’s modern nihonga representative, Takeuchi Seiho, the elements leading to the movements that can be seen between pictures, their assemblage and combination are sought in order to discover the attractions of Seiho’s art.
