Takeuchi Seiho - The Master of Modern Nihonga

October 22 (Tuesday) -December 1 (Sunday)



Born in Kyoto, Takeuchi Seiho (1864-1942) was an artist who succeeded in the major role of modernizing nihonga. Based on his experience of study and travel abroad in Western Europe in the Meiji period, Seiho was able to incorporate it into the sketching from life and sketching the idea, so important to the Shijo School conception of picture making, to arrive at a thorough form of actual observation that created a new style in Japanese painting circles. Seiho was to amass a great number of followers and his influence was exceedingly large. Seiho was a great artist instrumental in founding this museum and he is the representative artist of the museum’s collection. This exhibition brings together under one roof approximately 100 representative works from the collections of a variety of places in addition to approximately fifty other materials in which we can savor the art and review the artist’s significance in this rare opportunity.
