Many of the exhibitions with the theme of opening the port have focused on the acceptance and development of Western-style expressions at the end of the Edo period and the Meiji period, or the activities of painters, printmakers and photographers who came to Japan during this period. Here are some topics about what kind of cross-cultural reverberations have been realized in the long period of time, from the opening period to the end of World War II, without limiting the time.

Cut off his expression in Paris after the First World War, almost the same time as the exhibition of the exhibition “Twelve Painters in Love with Renoir and Paris” Shinji Fujita and Kiyoshi Hasegawa who developed. Around the same time, Yonosuke Natori absorbed the new German design theory centered on Bauhaus and published the NIPPON advertising magazine using the results. Footprints left by Nikkei and Japanese artists in American society with multi-ethnic coexistence and friction. After World War II, when both the means of transportation and the information media were accelerated at a stretch, the spillover spread while sharing the awareness of the problem rather than a unilateral influence, like the French “Unformel” and the “concrete” of Japan. Trends will appear.

There is also a corner where you can see the work of Paul Jaclay who lived in Japan as a painter in the tradition of Ukiyo-e, and Hiroshi Yoshida who strategically launched the latest Japanese prints overseas, with the keyword “woodcuts”. It was. Between these various topics, we will incorporate special exhibits from the opening period such as “Yokohama Ukiyo-e” and “Meiji Photography”, which include many new collections.
