Watanabe Seitei – Brilliant Birds, Captivating Flowers

Art, Museums & Exhibitions
A grand exhibition of lesser known works by the Nihonga painter Watanabe Seitei. After studying painting at the renowned Kikuchi Yosai studio in the mid 19th century, Seitei’s work was exhibited in the Paris World Exposition in 1878 and the Chicago World’s Fair in 1893, garnering much attention overseas. His unique influences and expressive style developed with a particular focus on birds and flowers. Despite attracting only modest recognition in Japan, the artist’s legacy has found new appreciation in the last century, cementing his place as a master in the history of Japanese painting.
