"Rokuro Taniuchi Shukan Shincho Cover Art Exhibition 1966"
This event has ended.
Exhibition of all original illustrations from the museum collection by Rokuro Taniuchi, focusing on this work for the magazine Shukan Shincho.
This section of the exhibition showcases cover illustrations from 1966 issues of the magazine, as well as the large work "Village in Autumn," created for an exhibition marking the 500th issue of the publication. Measuring 7.4 meters across, the painting is full of the poetic longing and nostalgia that Taniuchi is renowned for.
The exhibition also introduces audiences to the short essays, "Hyoshi no Kotoba," that Taniuchi wrote to accompany each cover. The ideas and daydreams that animated the illustrations, as well as Taniuchi's thoughts on various other topics, are condensed in these little epigrams.
