Hiraga Kamesuke: A Japanese Painter in France
20 April [Wed] - 28 April [Thu], 1955
About this exhibition
In 1906 Hiraga immigrated to America. Then in 1925 he moved to France, where he lived for most of his life. For this solo exhibition organized by our museum, he returned to Japan for the first time in fifty years. Among the works on display was The Streets of Old Paris, with which he became the first Japanese awarded a gold medal at the Salon in France. Ishibashi Shojiro added it to his collection because of the artist's wish that it finds a home in Japan.
