Known for his simple and colourful depictions of landscapes and animals – mainly cats – Morikazu Kumagai (1880-1977) lived an eventful life. Born in Gifu, he left for Tokyo at 17 to become a painter, worked in Sakhalin and even had his vivid works exhibited in Paris in the ’60s. Marking 40 years since Kumagai's death, the National Museum of Modern Art presents this extensive retrospective, exhibiting more than 200 pieces that cover the entirety of his lengthy career.
