Yoshida Hiroshi Exhibition

Commemorating the 70th Anniversary of His Death

Venue: Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum When: Jan 26th - Mar 28th 2021, 9:30am - 5:30pm

A special exhibition scheduled to take place at the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum looks into the works of Yoshida Hiroshi (1876 - 1950), a renowned painter who also developed skill in woodblock prints later in his career. In his early days he enthusiastically studied Western-style painting, but managed to form his own unique style of expression. Some refer to his work as a fusion of Western realism and traditional Japanese print art.

The event commemorates 70 years since Yoshida's passing and will showcase works from every stage of his career, including his early prints and sketchbooks, right through to his masterpieces.

The admission price for the special exhibition has not yet been determined. Details will be updated on the official website closer to the event's commencement.

Getting there

The Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum is located 7 minutes on foot from the JR Ueno Station's Park Exit.

I'm an expat who has lived abroad for almost a decade, including 7 years in Japan. I've also visited 44 of 47 prefectures and hope to get to the last three someday! I'm particularly fond of exploring off the beaten path destinations, gardens, and tea houses, and have a real interest in Japan's growing vegan scene.
