Until July 24

It has been 150 years since the birth of painter, calligrapher and book cover designer Fusetsu Nakamura (1866-1943), the subject of the Nakamuraya Salon Museum of Art’s current solo show.

Divided into five sections charting his career, “The Fascination of Nakamura Fusetsu” begins with early works by the artist produced while he was studying Western-style oil painting in Paris. Not only did Nakamura create his own original works, but he also became well-known for his book covers and magazine illustrations, which he designed for renowned writers and poets such as Shiki Masaoka and Natsume Soseki.
