The Fukuoka Prefectural Museum of Art is hosting an exhibition Kenichi Nakamura’s works. Kenichi Nakamura (1895-1967) was born in Munakata City and was a highly esteemed Western-style painter. The event will mark half a century since Nakamura’s passing and is particularly noteworthy as a large scale retrospective of his artwork has not been displayed in Fukuoka for over 45 years. A graduate of the Tokyo School of Fine Arts, Nakamura studied in France in the early 1920s and was known for his depictions of the battlefield during wartime before becoming a member of the Imperial Arts Academy in 1950. The exhibition will feature his pre and post-war work, as well as paintings of his hometown.
