The Exhibition from the Collection of Seiji Togo Memorial Sompo Japan Nipponkoa Museum of Art

This exhibition – the first from the collection of the museum after being renamed from SEIJI TOGO MEMORIAL SOMPO JAPAN MUSEUM OF ART on September 1 – will consist of two sections in commemoration of the renaming.

I. Seiji Togo and “Surrealistic Stroll”
Togo, who is today known as a painter of women, painted “Surrealistic Stroll” in a rare style for Togo, over a few years following his studies in France. This work that captivates all generations, including those not familiar with Togo, has been selected for the museum’s new logo. The exhibition will showcase about 40 works ranging from Togo’s early works up to his representative work “Nostalgia” (1959), as well as about 30 works of other artists from the same period.

II. Sompo Japan Nipponkoa Collection
On display will be over 20 of the major works entrusted from Sompo Japan Nipponkoa.
