Chihiro Art Museum Collection Exhibit: Let’s Go by Train!
Illustrations and picture books featuring trains by picture book artists attest to the appeal of railway transportation across time and countries. From realistic representations to the world of the fantastic, different artists employ different approaches to create expressive effects. In this exhibit we introduce works depicting a range of trains, from steam locomotives to subways. And don’t worry; we haven’t forgotten the train that is nearest to our museum: the train parked in Totto-chan Square.
