The 120th Anniversary of the Birth of Seiji Togo
A Retrospective of Togo’s Depiction of Women : Lyricism and Beauty
End of the exhibition
A special retrospective exhibition will be held marking the 120th anniversary of the birth of Seiji Togo (1897?1978), a Western-style artist who was an active member of Nika Society. The exhibition will feature valuable works borrowed from across the country, including private collections that will be on public display for the first time. It will shed light on how the “Togo style” came into being, beginning with his avant-garde paintings that are considered the first “Futurist-type” works in Japan, followed by his representative work “Street Performers” that combine compositional beauty and lyricism, and depictions of women that were beloved by many people after World War II.
The highlights of the exhibition are Togo’s rarely seen works from the 1930s, such as large decorative paintings for the Marubutsu Department Store co-created with Tsuguharu Foujita. Through approximately 60 works of art, as well as publications and photographs, the exhibit will look back on the diverse talents of Togo who rose to enormous fame during Japan’s turbulent times.
