About 100 works by Italian artist Giorgio de Chirico (1888-1978) — including oils, watercolors sketches and sculptures — are being brought to the Shiodome Museum Rouault Gallery, with roughly 80 percent of them being shown in Japan for the first time.

Though De Chirico is known for his metaphysical art that went on to influence the Surrealists, he is also remembered for his unexpected shifts to classicism. This exhibition charts his 70 years as an artist and how, despite other interests, he always returned to his original style; Oct. 25-Dec. 26.
