¥16 – ¥1200

Osaka-born Tsuyoshi Isoe (1954-2007)left for Madrid at the age of 19 to study oil painting in the midst of the tide of Realism, characterized by detailed representation through close observation, that was sweeping Madrid. During his 30 years in Europe, he painted under the name Gustavo Isoe, producing highly acclaimed realistic works and garnering high praise from one of Spain’s leading realist artists, Antonio Lopez Garcia. After his return to Japan, Isoe took a position at Hiroshima City University in 2005, but passed away two years later at the early age of 53.

This exhibition at the Hiroshima Prefectural Art Museum (next to Shukkei-en Garden) displays 100 works including some of his earliest to many of his masterpieces.
