The first retrospective exhibition that traces the life of Hiromitsu Nakazawa, a painter, designer, and travel writer.

Hiromitsu Nakazawa (1874-1964), a painter who was active in Japanese Western-style paintings from the Meiji era to the Showa era. Nakazawa was a Western-style painter as well as an excellent designer. With his outstanding design sense, he was one of the first to adopt European Art Nouveau, and has worked on various book covers and magazine cover paintings, including books by Akiko Yosano. Nakazawa, who loved traveling, drew landscapes around Japan and wrote his own travelogue. In addition to oil paintings, there are many travel sketches and watercolors. After Nakazawa died in 1964 (Showa 39), the atelier has been carefully maintained until now as it was when the painter was making it.

This time, a survey of the atelier revealed many valuable materials such as unpublished works and antique works of art collected by Nakazawa. This exhibition is the first major retrospective exhibition that reveals the unknown side of Hiromitsu Nakazawa based on research, and traces the whole picture of the painting industry through oil paintings, watercolor paintings, sketches, and book design including masterpieces.
