Special Exhibition: The Meiji Period Depicted by Western-style Painters: The Yamaoka Collection and the Ishibashi Collection, at Ishibashi Museum of Art, Kurume, Fukuoka
22nd June - 1st September, 2013 | Ishibashi Museum of Art, Kurume, Fukuoka
The pictures we are familiar with as “yoga (Japanese Western-style paintings)” were born in the Meiji period and generally refer to pictures painted by employing Western painting, i.e. oil painting, techniques. Through 161 Meiji period Western-style paintings from the Yamaoka and Ishibashi Collections (84 from the Yamaoka Collection, 16 from Kasama Nichido Museum of Art, 11 from Bridgestone Museum of Art, 42 from Ishibashi Museum of Art, and 8 deposited at Ishibashi Museum of Art), this exhibition attempts to look into the Meiji period and close in on the charm of the Japanese Western-style paintings.
