A look at the masterpieces of Yokoyama Taikan, Hishida Shunsō, Kawai Gyokudō and Kawabata Ryūshi

Yokoyama Taikan, Hishida Shunsō, Kawai Gyokudō and Kawabata Ryūshi led the development of nihonga (Japanese painting), building upon traditions while adapting their styles to a new era. This exhibition looks back over the progress of modern nihonga by shining a light on these four artists and their careers. It also looks at the “Syochikubai Exhibition”, an event organized at the request of the Yamatane Museum's founder, Yamazaki Taneji, in which Taikan, Gyokudō and Ryūshi participated, with all pieces from that exhibition featured here. See masterpieces by each of these artists from the Yamatane collection.
