Artists of Shunyo-kai: Celebrating Its 100th Anniversary


Overview

Shunyo-kai is an art society with a one-hundred-year-long history since its foundation. Artists who seceded from the yōga (Western-style painting) section of Nihon Bijutsuin (Japan Art Institute), the largest nongovernmental art organization, in 1920 (Taisho 8) gathered up-and-coming artists and inaugurated a new association named “Shunyo-kai” in 1922.

They did not aim at becoming a group of artists with kindred artistic principles. Instead, they favored “mutual individualism” and considered it important to respect each artist’s originality. Unbound by the format, member artists submitted not only oil paintings but prints, drawings, sumi ink paintings, and original works for newspaper illustrations to the group’s exhibitions. At Shunyo-kai, the artists would comment on one another’s works in order to deepen one’s studies, bring up the next generation, and solidify their foundation.

This exhibition introduces the strenuous efforts of the artists at Shunyo-kai with two hundred works from its establishment to the 1950s.
