The Meguro Museum of Art, Tokyo, is holding the second part of its series of exhibitions showcasing Japanese artists who chose to study or do research in Paris. The first exhibition followed the work of artists who studied in the city in the early 1900s, during its heyday as a cultural hub of the world.
This time, the show features postwar artists of the 1950s and ’60s. After World War II, Japan was able to embrace more culture from overseas, often holding large exhibitions of Western art that went on to influence many of Japan’s modern and contemporary artists. Works by Nobumichi Ide, Toshimitsu Imai and Yasukazu Tabuchi will be on display, as well as those of Hiroshi Narui and Tadao Sumikawa, local artists who were also influenced by foreign art genres.
