Kobayashi Mango (1868-1947) was born in Kagawa and studied at Tokyo School of Fine Arts. Active in groups such as Hakuba-kai, Kofu-kai, and Teiten (the Exhibition of the Imperial Academy of Fine Arts), he was one of the artists indispensable to the formation of academism in Japanese Western-style painting. He lived at a time when Japanese Western-style painting was heading from its dawning to a period of maturation, perfectly overlapping the evolution of Japanese Western-style painting. In this retrospective, which is the first to be held outside his native town, in addition to representative works by Kobayashi, his teacher, Kuroda Seiki, fellow artists at Hakuba-kai and Kofu-kai, and artists of later generations are also introduced to vividly illustrate the history of Japanese Western-style painting.
