During Japan’s 15 turbulent years of war — from the Manchurian Incident of 1931, through the Second Sino War from 1937 to the end of World War II in 1945 — artists, despite difficulties, continued to explore means of expression. For some, the conflict provided a source of new themes that led to new styles. This show brings together 14 famous artists’ works, ranging in genres from Western-style oils to Japanese-style paintings and woodblock prints, offering depictions of subjects that vary from seemingly peaceful scenes of a family at a beach to a window view of an atomic bomb’s mushroom cloud.
