The Japan Foundation presents an exhibition introducing the Japanese modern art at Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna to commemorate the 50th anniversary of The Japan Cultural Institute in Rome.

Aiming to retrace the history of modern nihonga [Japanese-style painting] and Japanese crafts from the Meiji Restoration to the pre-war era (the early Showa period), this exhibition consists of approximately 110 works of nihonga and roughly 60 works of Japanese crafts (ceramics, lacquers, textiles, metalworks, etc.).

This is the first large-scale nihonga exhibition in Rome ever since the well-known “Esposizione d'arte Giapponese Roma” took place in 1930, organized by Taikan Yokoyama with financial support from Kishichiro Okura in celebration of Japan-Italy friendship.
