Exhibition Tomioka Tessai: The Last Literati Painter (Commemorating the 100th Anniversary of the Artist’s Death) 2024.
04.02 tue. - 05.26 sun.

Born into a Kyoto merchant family in the late Edo Period, Tomioka Tessai (1837–1924) was a highly accomplished painter whose work was underpinned by his profound knowledge. He devoted himself to a wide range of studies, including Confucianism and Japanese classics, taught himself the techniques of many different schools of painting, and practiced the proverb, “Read 10,000 books, travel 10,000 miles.” Tessai was reputed to be the last of the Bunjinga literati painters, and the end of 2024 marks the centenary of the master artist’s death.
In addition to Tessai’s masterpieces, this exhibition features works that have rarely been displayed in the past as well as recently rediscovered pieces. The inclusion of stationery and old books from the artist’s studio provides us with a glimpse of the artist’s daily life in the city. The first Tessai show to be held in Kyoto in 27 years, this exhibition will provide viewers with an opportunity to become more familiar with his work.
