Cherry motifs in copperplate prints

Yozo Hamaguchi (1909-2000) was one of the foremost printmakers of the 20th century. His works, filled with a tranquillity that draws the viewer in, are popular the world over to this day. This exhibition focuses on Hamaguchi’s many works bearing a cherry motif, including copperplate prints and lithographs. Also, to enable visitors to feel closer to the world of Hamaguchi’s work, the museum has been decorated with floating cherries, which appear to have escaped from their picture frames. A number of other events are also taking place at the same time, including a display of “Movement act”, a piece that became famous on social media, as well as a copperplate print class and coloring book workshop.
