Yamanashi National Cultural Festival Assoicated Event “100 Years of Hideo Hagiwara”
This event has ended.
Born in Kofu, Yamanashi, Hideo Hagiwara(1913-2007) was one of Japan’s leading post war print makers. After the war Hagiwara suffered from tuberculosis and while recuperating began to create wood prints of bold originality and went on to gain national and international acclaim, with a unique technique of color overlay which invested his work with a particular depth. Yet his work was not merely limited to print making but also encompassed oil painting, collage, and ink drawing, working across multiple genres throughout his life. In commemoration of 100 years since Hagiwara’s birth this exhibition offers a new overview of his career with a spotlight being placed upon his full Mt. Fuji series, amongst 180 works.
