Exhibition Overview

The Yamatane Museum of Art instituted the Yamatane Museum of Art Award in 1971 as part of its efforts to encourage and promote nihonga. The results were presented in the - Yamatane Museum of Art Award: Contemporary Nihonga exhibitions, which were held fourteen times, every other year between 1971 and 1997. In 2016, to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of its founding, the museum relaunched the award, adhering to its original purpose but implementing it in a new format, a juried public entry exhibition, renamed - Yamatane Museum of Art NIHONGA AWARD: Seed. The objectives of this award are to discover and encourage outstanding artists working in new creative directions in nihonga and to contribute to cultivating nihonga artists and the development of nihonga for a new era through there activities.

In the second holding of the new award (and the sixteenth since the Yamatane Museum of Art Award was founded), 189 works were submitted. After a rigorous screening by the seven members of the jury, Yasuhara Shigemi’s Japanese Big-Leaf Magnolia After Rain was chosen to receive the Grand Prize. The Prize for Excellence goes to Aoki Hideaki’s Emus—Flightless Birds, and Nostalgie by Kondō Mamoru was selected for the Special Prize (presented by Seiko Holdings Corporation). In addition, five works received the Encouragement Prize: Standing Quietly in a Snowfield, by Egawa Naoya, A New World, by Kitagawa Akiko, Enjoying Each Other’s Company, by Mori Mei, Blue Thoughts Night Dream by Nagaoka Ikumi, and Lokadhātu (The World System), by Toyama Makoto.

This exhibition presents the forty-four works that were nominated for awards, including these prize-winning works. Through the work of these young artists, of whom we have high expectations, we hope visitors will be able to sense a new energy and a positive future for nihonga.

During the exhibition period, the museum with also display a selection of Edo-period masterpieces from our collection, including paintings designated as Important Cultural Properties, to introduce the historic foundations underlying modern and contemporary nihonga. We hope you will enjoy viewing them in conjunction with the prizewinning works by young artists.

Finally, we would like to take the opportunity presented by this exhibition to express our deep gratitude to all those whose unstinting efforts and cooperation have contributed to the exhibition’s successful realization.

Acting on the principle of contributing through art to society espoused by our founder, Yamazaki Taneji (founder of Yamatane Securities, now SMBC Nikko Securities Inc.), our museum instituted the Yamatane Museum of Art Award in 1971 as part of our program to encourage and promote nihonga. The Yamatane Museum of Art Award: Contemporary Nihonga exhibition was held fourteen times, every other year, through 1997. For the Yamatane Museum of Art Award exhibitions, artists recommended by the nomination committee showed new or as yet unexhibited work, and the jury selected one artist to receive the Grand Prize and two to receive the Prize for Excellence.
