Settai Style ― From Edo Chic to Tokyo Modern

11:00–16:00・Feb 06, 2021–Apr 18, 2021・Mitsui Memorial Museum Nihonbashimuromachi 2-1-1, Chuo-ku

This exhibition celebrates the modernity and continuing influence of the artist and designer Settai Komura (1887-1940). By successfully imbuing the essence of Edo style but adding a distinctly modern flair, Settai Komura developed designs that continue to influence artists today. Undeniably charming, his work covered a range of mediums including book design, illustration, prints, stage sets and advertising. The exhibition will also include works by modern artists influenced by the aesthetics of ‘Settai Style’.
