Chihiro Art Museum Collection Exhibition: Stories of the World

Age-old folk tales, legends, and the fairy tales of Andersen and Grimm are still loved around the world after more than 100 years. Stories such as these have enthralled picture book artists in every corner of the globe. And even when these artists portray the same story, because each employs his or her own different technique and expressive style, they are able to produce works that are distinctively rich in character. In this exhibition we present the world of stories as depicted by artists from the Museum Collection and hope that you will enjoy revisiting these tales through the pictures that were created to tell them.
