Genichiro Inokuma (1902-1993) never stopped changing his style of depicting human beings. His academic expressions from Tokyo School of Fine Arts and human figure paintings during his stay in France show that he always tried a variety of techniques and methods of artistic expression. The exhibition will also include a major trilogy of his painting, “Daytime” “Night” and “Twilight”.
