In March 2021, the National Museum of Modern Art, Kyoto acquired a group of 42 works by the painter Kishida Ryusei. This brings the total number of Kishida’s works in the museum collection to approximately 50 items, providing a complete overview of the artist’s creative activities and exemplifying every stylistic change that occurred from the beginning to the end of his career.

In this exhibit, designed to commemorate these new acquisitions, we present all of the works by Kishida Ryusei in the museum collection. We also focus on some such as Self-Portrait Wearing a Coat, which was formerly part of the Morimura Yoshiyuki Collection, and Still Life (A Bottle, an Apple and a Teacup), which was part of Morimura’s younger brother Matsukata Saburo’s collection, while taking a look back at the role of such collections in honoring the work of Kishida.
