Event Description

Exhibition from August 9th - December 14th. Tokujiro Nishi, a Japanese artist who blended eastern and western painting styles, will be exhibited by The Drexel Collection for the second time. Tokujiro Nishi, who was born in Tokyo, Japan in 1929 and spent his entire life using a blend of Eastern and Western styles and techniques in his art. Nishi was a student of Matsao Hao, who was inspired by the Japanese style of art he learned at the Tokyo Fine Arts School and the Western art being introduced to Japan in the early 20th century. Nishi joined Hato’s artist group Sakujitsu-Kati in 1949, when he first had his art exhibited as a 20-year-old. Since then, Nishi’s art has been exhibited at the Tokyo Modern Museum and the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum, as well as in exhibits across the world.

With paintings from The Drexel Collection as well as loans from the collection of Ayumu Yokoyama, PhD and Kristine Mulhorn, PhD. the exhibition showcases the growth and evolution of Nishi as an artist, as well as the development of his style and composition.

The exhibition will be on view in the Paul Peck Alumni Center Gallery at 32nd & Market from August 9th through December 14th. The gallery is open 9 a.m. - 4 p.m., Monday - Friday. The entrance is at the back of the building off the Perelman Plaza, please ring the bell to enter. The gallery is free and open to the public.
