A special exhibition at the Fukuoka Art Museum focuses on the connection and appreciation that the Japanese-French painter Léonard Tsuguharu Foujita (1886 - 1968) had with textiles. The event will showcase a range of artworks from Foujita that depict textiles in various forms, along with clothes and accessories he personally made, and textile items from Maison-Atelier Foujita, the house and studio where he lived in his later years until his passing.

Adult admission to the event is priced at 1300 yen.
