The Seiji Togo Collection - The Beauty in His Art

This show is aimed at introducing overlooked aspects of life and works of Seiji Togo, one of the important artists in the 20th century Japan. More than 100 works of art will be showcased alongside about the same amount of documents and other materials. A half of the works are paintings, sculptures and prints of Togo, praised for his depiction of the beauty of women in the rise of Modernism in Japan. The other half are works of other artists who were acquainted with or influenced by him, or who participated in French artists’ groups related to the Nika Association, Japanese independent art organization Togo was deeply involved in.
The documents include correspondence of Togo with his wife and friends and printed materials such as book covers he designed and invitation letters to his solo-exhibitions. Also, Togo’s easel, paintbrushes, and other painting materials will be exhibited. Some of these documents and materials in the Togo collection are open to the public for the first time in this show.
