Mountaineer in My Heart: The Woodcut Prints of Azechi Umetaro

Machida City Museum of Graphic Arts

poster for Mountaineer in My Heart: The Woodcut Prints of Azechi Umetaro

Ends in 29 days

Many works by Azechi Umetaro (1902-99), who has been dubbed the Printmaker of Mountaineering, feature the expressive faces of mountaineers. His woodcuts depict these men’s rising spirits before climbing the mountains, the joy of encountering ptarmigans in harsh outdoor environments, and the deep blue sky found at the summit of a peak. Azechi, who consistently portrayed in his prints those things that had made an impression on him during his own excursions into the mountains, described them as “the mountaineers in my heart.” Focusing primarily on his Mountaineer series of prints, the exhibition will feature around 100 works by Azechi, who was made an honorary citizen of Machida City in 1997.
