Masterpieces of the Kawabata Yasunari / Higashiyama Kaii Collection

Date:
Jul. 1 - Aug. 20
Location:
Temporary Exhibition Gallery

Detail

    Kawabata Yasunari (1899-1972, b. Osaka), the author of Snow Country and The Dancing Girl of Izu, won the Nobel Prize for literature in 1968. He was also known as a passionate collector with a deep knowledge of art. His important collection contains a broad range of art including three national treasures.
    As Kawabata cultivated a deep friendship with the Japanese painter Higashiyama Kaii (1908-1999, b. Yokohama), the paintings of Higashiyama became an integral part of the Kawabata Collection. In addition, Higashiyama was also an art collector of exquisite taste. 
    This exhibition presents these great collections by Kawabata and Higashiyama and tries a close look at their unique world of beauty.
