Yukio Fukazawa and Mexico


- 2024.01.14.Sun.

When the museum was renovated in 2013, the exhibits in the permanent collection gallery will be changed four times a year so that as many people as possible can appreciate the works of Yukio Fukazawa, one of Japan's leading copperplate engravers and an honorary citizen of Ichihara City. While doing so, we are introducing Fukazawa's works stored in Ichihara City.
In this third exhibition, we will introduce 21 copperplate prints by Yukio Fukazawa owned by Ichihara City, entitled "Yukio Fukazawa and Mexico"
In this exhibition, Yukio Fukazawa will introduce works that intersect his own identity with Mexico, which he visited for the first time in 11 years. In 1974, Fukasawa returned to Mexico for a solo exhibition and enthusiastically toured the ruins. From then on, his style changed further, and "shadows", representing the Spanish invasion of Mexico, began to appear in many of his works' themes. This time, 21 works from around 1973 to around 1980 are on display. Please take a look at the works created with Mexico's historical context in mind.
