“Boston Museum of Fine Arts Exhibition Art x Power” will be held at the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum from July 23!

Prior to the opening, official supporter Jun Kaname visited the venue "I was overwhelmed by the power of the work I was looking forward to."

Finally, tomorrow, Saturday, July 23, "Boston Museum of Fine Arts Exhibition Art x Power" will open at the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum.

This exhibition, which will be held two years after the original schedule, will introduce about 60 works produced in various regions such as Egypt, Europe, India, China, and Japan.

In addition, "Kibi Minister Irikara Emaki" and "Heiji Monogatari Emaki Sanjoden Night Battle", which are said to be "national treasures in Japan", will return home for the first time in about 10 years, and two works will be exhibited together. In addition, the masterpiece "Peacock Figure" by Yuksai Masuyama, who was the feudal lord of the Ise and Nagashima feudal clan during the Edo period, will be restored for this exhibition and will be premiered in Japan.

Prior to the opening, official supporter actor Jun Kaname visited the venue and watched the exhibition.

  • 《Kibi Minister Nittara Emaki》
  • Kaname, who slowly watched the four picture scrolls, said, "The color balance is very good." "It's powerful and the details that can't be seen in the photographs are amazing. The people depicted don't have the same facial expressions. I feel the talent of the person who drew the work." In the Go scene (a scene where you swallow a go stone and cheat), you can laugh at the humorous depiction.

  • Mashiyama Masakata << Peacock Figure >>
  • The moment I saw the work, he said, "Wow, this is amazing. It's completely different from the photo. The wings are fine. It's really amazing."
    "I personally looked forward to this work, but when I actually saw it, I was overwhelmed by the power. The fineness of the wings is delicate and I feel the power of painting. I feel that I have finally come to Japan. It's full. "
