This exhibition investigates the theme of Western inspiration in the arts of Japan and also raises the notion of individuality in a culture known for its conformity. The examples shown here encompass five decades (1900-1950) representing a panorama in Japanese creative prints (sosaku hanga). Works by artists such as Onchi Koshiro, Tomimoto Kenkichi, Yamamoto Kanae, Hasegawa Kiyoshi, Munakata Shiko are amply illustrated. Contributors include Ajioka Chiaki (Curator of Japanese Art, The Art Gallery of New South Wales), Kuwahara Noriko (Researcher, the University of Tsukuba) and Nishiyama Junkon (Curator, Chiba City Museum of Art).
