One of the early 20th-century pioneers of modern Japanese painting, Tetsugoro Yorozu (1885-1927) was one of the first of his countrymen to embrace the European avant-garde. Incorporating influences from Fauvism and cubism, Yorozu made waves mainly with his experimental work, but the Iwate native was also a prolific watercolour and oil painter. This extensive retrospective – the first of its kind in 20 years – features a total of around 400 pieces and shines a spotlight on Yorozu's entire oeuvre, including sketches, prints and production notes. It's held at the Museum of Modern Art in Hayama, not far from Chigasaki where the artist spent most of his last decade.
