This event has ended.

Insho Domoto was born in Kyoto in 1891 and entered the Kyoto Municipal Special School of Painting in 1918. Establishing a strong presence in the Japanese painting circle and setting up his own private painting school, called “Tokyusha”, Insho Domoto was a representative painter and helped to train the younger generations.
2015 is the 40th anniversary of Insho Domoto’s death. Earlier this year, the museum held the “Domoto Insho: A Retrospective - 40th anniversary of His Death”, which covered Insho’s artistic career from his early beginnings to his last years through major works from our collection including “Princess Konohanasakuya” and “Symphony”. The current exhibition “Retrospective II” shows his work mainly from other collections, such as “Kegon”, a masterpiece of Buddhist painting, a highlight of Insho’s art practice and “Woman Drinking Tea”, Fusuma Paintings in Shinden of Chishakuin-Temple, depicting women in Japanese-style and Western-style dress drinking tea together.
