Many artworks which express the characteristics of the artist are introduced. In Japan, modern art has been spread and developed in the postwar period through the department store market.

Message

 This exhibition marks the Tokyo Art Club's 20th Toobi special exhibition, held triennially since the 1964 Tokyo Olympic year.

 Over the intervening decades our world has been embroiled in massive change, with an ongoing litany of unpredicted events and difficulties. And yet, splendid artworks always bring calming dreams and sentiments into our hearts. The members of the Tokyo Art Dealers' Association strive every day to convey these sentiments to the public.

 In this year's triennial Toobi exhibition, 65 association member art dealers are presenting a special selection of their best artworks. This exhibition will be a chance for visitors to talk with the booth attendants and actually handle artworks, unlike the usual situation in museums where you can only view art masterpieces housed in glass cases. This exhibition with its broad range of displayed items, from ancient to contemporary art, will surely satisfy all art-loving visitors.

 I look forward to welcoming all art aficionados to our exhibition, where we can meet and talk about all of these magnificent artworks on display.
