Ginko, Ryusei and Reiko KISHIDA
Genealogy of Innovative Spirit

Overview

Ryusei Kishida (1891-1929) is famous for the series of portraits he painted of his daughter Reiko. His father, Ginko (1833-1905), was a remarkable man, a journalist and entrepreneur with a broad understanding of East and West who played an important role in the turbulent early period of Japanese Westernization. How was Ryusei influenced by his father, and how was he seen as a father by Reiko (1914-1962), the daughter who modeled for him for a long time. This exhibition explores the innovative spirit of the Kishida family. In addition to showing the major paintings of Ryusei, it presents valuable documentation and objects related to Ginko and traces Reiko’s achievements in the theater and the visual arts.
