Shiko Munakata Exhibition

Wed., September.09.2020 ~ Sat., October.31

Shiko Munakata is among Japan’s most famous woodblock artists. He deepened his knowledge of Buddhism, classical literature, and other fields through his interactions with Kanjiro Kawai and other folk artists. As the Pacific War intensified, he evacuated to Fukumitsu Town, Nishi-Tonami District (now Nanto City), Toyama Prefecture in April of 1945, to avoid the ongoing warfare. During the six years and eight months he spent there, he created many works with Toyama-related themes. Even now, in the 21st century, his international recognition continues to rise more than ever. This exhibition introduces Shiko Munakata’s achievements as an artist, featuring works with close ties to Toyama, as well as his masterpieces. We hope that visitors appreciate his expressive works, full of the spirit of mercy and love, and vitality.

• In Praise of Flower Hunting (1954)
