ARTCOURT Gallery is pleased to present the works of Ryuji Tanaka.

Ryuji Tanaka was a noteworthy artist who was involved in two avant-garde groups that were indispensable to post-war Japanese art. One of the groups was the Pan-real Art Association, and the other was the Gutai Art Association.

Tanaka created a lots of paintings by using not only traditional nihon-ga material like mineral pigment or Japanese Sumi-ink, and also sand or wood glue to express his concept of a distictive Japanese view of nature.

We welcome you to participate this exciting experience of opposing views between Japan and the West in nihon-ga paintings.
