Higashiyama Kaii Retrospective 1908-1999
Higashiyama Kaii (1908-1999) is nationally renowned as a Nihon-ga (Japanese-style) painter representing the postwar era. This exhibition marks the first large-scale retrospective of Higashiyama’s career in Tokyo in a decade. Born in Yokohama and a graduate of the Tokyo Fine Arts School, Higashiyama studied in Germany before enduring a period of great hardship, including being drafted in the Pacific War. After the war, he pioneered a unique style of landscape painting, and showed a multitude of highly lyrical masterpieces, primarily in the Nitten exhibition. Boasting a large collection of important Higashiyama works, the exhibition also includes a special showing of the monumental Toshodaiji Miei-do Murals.
