"Ryoji Kumata and Friends - Shiko Munakata & Yasunori Taninaka" Exhibition
This event has ended.
Featuring the work of Ryoji Kumata, as well as that of Shinko Munakata and Yasunori Taninaka, whose prints featured in a magazine published by Kumata, this exhibition showcases three of pre-war Japan's leading printmakers.
Ryoji Kumata (1899-1982, from Okayama), was the editor behing "White and Black", published in Tokyo in 1930, as well as a variety of other magazines about printing. He also produced his own, finely textured woodblock prints. A cultural salon, composed of Shiko Munakata and Yasunori Taninaka, formed around him.
Through this exhibition, visitors will have an opportunity to understand these three artists' work, their backgrounds and the cultural trends of the time.
