The Museum of Modern Art, Wakayama

poster for Kampu Ohmata: 120 Years On

This event has ended.

Wakayama-born painter Kampu Ohmata is remembered for his Japanese-style paintings from the Taisho to the early Showa period. Best known for painting 10,000 leaves, many of his works were lost during war and are therefore left undiscovered. Within the Buddhist paintings, portrait paintings, paintings of flowers and birds, and landscape paintings of his hometown Wakayama, glimpses of his familiar tranquility or humor can be seen.
To celebrate his birth 120 years ago, this exhibition will bring together approximately 40 pieces, including works from private collections and pieces rediscovered in recent years.
