Okura Museum of Art Exhibition 1930 Rome Exhibition 90: The Flowers of Modern Japanese Painting:
Since the Meiji era, Yokoyama Taikan, Hishida Shunso, Shimomura Kanzan and others worked on the innovation of Japanese painting while studying at the Japan Academy of Fine Arts formed by Okakura Tenshin, who sought a new path of Japanese art. After his teacher's death, Taikan succeeded his will and revived the Academy of Fine Arts, which had been suspended from external activities, in 1912.
With the full support of Kishiro Okura, who was also a patron of Taikan, the "Japan Art Exhibition" held in Rome in 1930 was a major project in the Japanese art platform at the time, with the participation of a total of 80 artists, including not only painters of the Inten Exhibition (Reviving Japan Academy of Fine Arts) led by Taikan, who served as the leader, but also painters from the official exhibition system, including Kawaai Tamado and Takeuchi Suho.
In commemoration of the 90th anniversary of the Rome exhibition, the works of artists who colored the modern age of Japan, such as Taikan and Shunso , will be exhibited mainly by the works exhibited in this exhibition.
