Selection of Contemporary Japanese Paintings Ⅱ Painters Making Great Strides –Focusing on Newer Inten Coteries–

Date: Wed, July 3, 2024 – Wed, October 2, 2024

The contemporary Japanese painting collection of the Adachi Museum consists mainly of works by painters who have flourished for the Inten, the Exhibition of the Japan Art Institute. Inten has painter-standards according to the frequency and history of winning awards. The painters of the highest standard, who are called coterie, participate in the organization of the Exhibition and the management of the Institute, as regular members.
This exhibition will introduce painters commended as coterie for the past ten years. They are considered to be up-and-comers, bearing the current and future Institute, which has functioned for more than one hundred years. We will display works by these painters, and works by young painters on whom the museum has focused.
We hope that you will enjoy these tours de force by painters who make ground on the today’s Japanese art world.
