Ito Shinsui and Sekine Shoji Exhibition Corner

Display corner that introduced life of two excellent painters of the Taisho era

Itou Shinsui was born in Nishi Morishita-cho in Fukagawa, and as an exemplar of the expression of feminine beauty in Japanese Ukiyo-e artworks, established his own worldview of beauty. Sekine Shoji was born at around the same time in Shirakawa, Fukushima Prefecture. Through meeting Shinsui he began painting works that overflow with individuality, and was representative of western-style painters in the Taisho era. The exhibit describes the lives and works of these two artists, whose art and lifestyles were so contrasting.
