'An overview of the development of yoga (Western-style painting) in Japan over the three decades from the beginning of the Taisho era to just before the Second World War, the exhibition highlighted 47 masterpieces (including a designated cultural asset of Japan) from the collections of the National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo, the National Museum of Modern Art, Kyoto, the National Museum of Modern Art, Osaka and the National Museum of Western Art. The exhibition was notable in that it introduced the works of both Japanese yoga artists and contemporaneous artists abroad who had influenced these artists. By comparing the two and reviewing the development of 'Western-style' painting in Japan and abroad, the exhibition sought to elucidate post-feudal Japan's 'assimilation and extension' of Western art.' - excerpt from the press release.

The present catalogue provides brief biographies of the artists, explanatory texts of artworks and a chronology of related events since 1910.
