Kawanabe Kyosai (1831-1889) was a renowned Japanese artist, and a special exhibition at the Tokyo Station Gallery looks into his works. There's a twist with this exhibition, though - none of his finished pieces will be on display. This event will have a carefully curated variety of items that show how Kyosai drew, including sketch drawings, preparatory pictures, and e-dehon (illustrated painting manuals).
This interesting look into what happens before a masterpiece is made gives a unique glimpse into the mind of an artist.
Adult admission to the event is priced at 1200 yen.
