Kawanabe Kyosai: Nothing Escaped His Brush

This exhibition commemorating the 130th anniversary of Kwanabe Kyosai’s death has two major foci: his work as a “Kano-school painter” and his innovative exploration based on the study of classical paintings during the tumultuous closing years of the Tokugawa shogunate and the launch of the new Meiji government. The paintings of Kannon, which he produced daily late in his life, and his careful copies of his predecessors’ work, speak to Kyosai’s sincerity and passion for art.

Visitors should note that here will be an exhibition change during the course of exhibition. A list of changes in works on display can be downloaded here.
