Print artist Azechi Umetaro’s “Mountaineer” series

An exhibition focusing on the “Mountaineer” series by woodblock print artist Azechi Umetaro (1902-1999). His works, based on his experience of walking in the mountains, are loved by people of all ages. Azechi moved to Tsurukawa in Machida City in the mid-1970s and spent his later years there, even being made an honorary citizen of the city. His “Mountaineer” print, presented at the autumn exhibition of the Kokugakai in 1952, captured people’s hearts with its simplicity and warmth. After that, Azechi became synonymous with the Mountaineer. Through the exhibition of around 100 pieces by Azechi, the event looks into what it is that he wanted to communicate with his art.
