Painting of a bewitching and yet, provocative girl, and pretty and spiritual doll-arts are some of the earlier works of modern Japanese aestheticism. Now, it is presented to be very erotic and illusionary by variety of ways, such as, by Japanese-style paintings, Oil paintings, and doll-works.

At the exhibition, there will be books and goods to be sold, regarding about the paintings and illustrations, but also books and goods about bisque dolls as well. This will be a great opportunity for us to immerse in to the the Japanese aestheticism where otaku and lolita cultures have flourished.
