Shozo Shimada Exhibition
This event has ended.
Shozo Shimada (1933–) is a leading Japanese contemporary painter who was born in Yokosuka. He first attracted attention while still a student for his painting "Neurosis", which depicted human figures against the ruined wasteland of Yokosuka in the aftermath of WWII. While the postwar Japanese art establishment found itself profoundly influenced by abstract art movements from abroad, Shimada persevered with his human portraits in an attempt to explore new possibilities for figurative painting.
This exhibition showcases some 100 oil paintings, prints, watercolors, sketches and ceramics.
