Special exhibition commemorating the 120th anniversary of the birth of Toyoshiro Fukuda and the 5th anniversary of the death of Fumiko Hori -- The joy of drawing, the joy of living --(特別展 福田豊四郎生誕120年・堀文子没後5年企画 福田豊四郎と堀文子 -描く歓び、生きる歓び-)

2024.04.09

Fumiko Hori, who was impressed by the art of Toyoshiro Fukuda at the age of 14, looked back on that encounter and said, "I really sympathized with the free spirit of Mr. Fukuda's paintings, or rather, the new style of expressing one's personality, in which you can feel the breath of modern people or a sense of reality, and I was drawn to it."

Born in Akita Prefecture in 1904, Toyoshiro constantly explored new Japanese paintings without pandering to the times, creating modern expressions that incorporated an enterprising spirit. In addition, he thought about his hometown all his life, and developed a world filled with poetic feelings of love and regret. His works, which are full of love for his hometown, have a certain gentleness that has touched people's hearts throughout the ages. Fumiko, who learned from Toyoshiro his attitude as a painter and his philosophy of life, set for herself high ideals and continued to take on challenges until her later years. This exhibition traces the art of the two artists, focusing on Toyoshiro's masterpieces owned by the Akita Museum of Modern Art, and sheds light on the charm of Toyoshiro, whom Fumiko regards as her mentor.
