This event has ended.

The exhibition presents approximately 350 of Yumeji Takehisa's works from his youth until death in five sections: "1. The Beginning from Small Illustrations," "2. The Yumeji Art Book and Exhibition, the Age of Minatoya," "3. The Development of Lyricism," "4. The Road to Design," and "5. Yumeji's Travels." From socialist Yumeji who expressed empathy towards society's weak, charismatic Yumeji who created the "Yumeji School," and Yumeji as a designer and traveller, the exhibition will expose the many faces of the artist.
