The graduation works and self-portraits painted by students have been
collected over many years at the Tokyo National University of Fine Artsand Music.
They have formed an important core of the universityfs collectionto the present day.
This exhibition especially focuses on oil paintings, pursuing the starting point of young artists,
especially how they faced depicting themselves in assigned self portraits over the change of times.
Along with the self-portraits, the graduation works which were paintedat the same time are displayed,
enabling to show the personality of the artist and their viewpoints at the time,
or the unique world that the artist created, to make a different way to appreciate the works possible.|
