One of the objectives of the Meguro Museum of Art, Tokyo, is to collect the works of artists who have had the opportunity to study and experience life overseas.

The first of two shows, this “Part 1” centers on the renowned painter and printmaker Tsuguharu Foujita (1886-1968) and reflects the development of Japanese artists who were actively involved in the Parisian art scene from around 1910 to 1940.

Split into two sections, the exhibition first follows the work and movement of artists who, before Foujita, ventured to Paris during the late Meiji and early Taisho eras. The second section covers the work of Foujita and other Paris residents, such as Usaburo Ihara and Zenzaburo Kojima; Oct. 25-Dec. 7.
