In March last year, the National Museum of Modern Art Kyoto (MoMAK) obtained 42 artworks created by Taishō and Shōwa period painter Riusei Kishida (1891 - 1929). He was best known for his realistic portrait style of painting, along with some nihonga-style works in the latter part of his career.

A special exhibition at the museum looks at their full collection of Kishida's works, which numbers around 50 pieces when including the 2021 acquisitions.

Adult admission to the event is priced at ¥ 1500.
