The earliest work discovered so far by Tsuguharu Fujita (1886-1968), who is also known as “Leonard Foujita,” will be displayed for the first time at a museum at the Tokyo University of the Arts from July 4, the university said Thursday.

The oil painting, which is 60 cm tall and 45 cm wide, depicts a woman in a kimono sitting on a chair from the back. It was donated last year to the university by an individual in Tokyo and is believed to have been painted by Fujita when he was a 22-year-old art student at the university’s predecessor.
