Celebrating the Shinshu Flower Festival 2019—Chihiro: A Flowered Life
Chihiro, known as an artist of flowers and children, could always be found in the vicinity of flowers. She adored them and the bond she established with flowers supported her creativity. In this exhibit, divided into such chapters as “Chihiro’s Garden,” “Chihiro’s Atelier” and “Chihiro’s Kurohime Mountain Villa,” we present a variety of Chihiro’s work featuring flowers, exploring the affection she had for her floral companions.
