The Big Picture Akira Yamaguchi

The Big Picture Akira Yamaguchi

Akira YAMAGUCHI

Publisher: Seigensha

A collection of exquisitely realized paintings, including examples of mixed-period ‘rakuchū rakugai-zu’ paintings of city scenes, and new works of ‘fusuma’ sliding door painting for Byōdōin Temple, ‘musha-e’ samurai fight scenes and various sketches.
Long awaited, this is the first collection of Yamaguchi’s work in eight years.
While focusing on the true painterly expressiveness that is Yamaguchi’s forte, this groundbreaking new collection also presents his tearoom-parody objets d’art, and his self-produced exhibitions that act as warning signals to the world of contemporary art, thereby providing an excellent overview of the multi-layered thought of Akira Yamaguchi.
