Thomsen Gallery

Japanese Art 1910-1950

March 14-22
Daily 11am-5pm, and by appointment

The exhibition focuses on Japanese fine art from 1910 to 1950, a time of great change for Japan and its arts. Superb works were created for the domestic market, in contrast to the export-oriented output during the prior Meiji era. Though most painters of the Taisho and early Showa eras typically remained focused on traditional themes, they often experimented with new materials and perspectives. They shifted from stylized depictions of nature to naturalistic botanical studies and many works show influence from the West.
