"Yumeji Takehisa -the World of Children-" Exhibition
This event has ended.
While Yumeji Takehisa is now best known for his bijin-ga (depiction of beautiful women) which represents his career during the Taisho period, it's also worth mentioning that he created countless works for children through various types of publication, contributing to the formation of "children culture" which took place from the Meiji period.
From illustrations for magazines and picture books to ones for children's literature, a wide variety of Takehisa's work faithfully captures children's life and psychology, richly portraying childhood that everybody once experienced.
This exhibition features over 250 works by Takehisa, centering on the depictions of children and ones created for children's literature.
