Yokoyama Taikan ―The Elite of the Tokyo Art World

This exhibition showcases the work of Yokoyama Taikan, who is known for nihonga, or Japanese-style (as opposed to Western-style) painting using specific materials. (You can read more about nihonga here.) The museum’s founder, Yamazaki Taneji, had a close relationship with the artist and the museum’s entire collection of Taikan’s work is on display, including several depictions of Mount Fuji and other scenes from the natural world.
