Sakamoto Hanjiro: Commemorating the 50th Anniversary of His Death 没後50年 坂本繁二郎展

Nerima Art Museum, 1-36-16 Nukui, Nerima City, Tokyo
2019-7-14 - 2019-9-16

140 pieces from Sakamoto’s career in still life paintings

Marking 50 years since his death, this exhibition looks at the works of the western-style painter Hanjiro Sakamoto (1882-1969). The event looks at Sakamoto’s whole artistic career, which began at the age of 16. Around 140 pieces and related materials are on display, including pieces by Sakamoto’s close friend, Shigeru Aoki. Before studying in Europe, Sakamoto’s main subject was cattle, and after returning, horses. After the war he focused on still lifes, particularly Noh masks, and in his twilight years his attention shifted to the moon as his main theme. This exhibition focuses particularly on the still lifes that Sakamoto painted throughout his career, while looking over the course his life took.
