<3nd Exhibition in Commemoration of the Museum's 20th Anniversary>

The Path of Chihiro Iwasaki

Throughout her life, Chihiro Iwasaki never tired of creating illustrations of children. In this exhibition we will focus on Chihiro’s 55-year life and artistic career, presenting works that she produced for picture-story shows, textbooks, illustrated magazines, and picture books, along with reference materials and photographs. We hope you will enjoy this full view of Chihiro, who lived during the turbulent times spanning Japan’s Taisho (1912 – 1926) and Showa (1926 – 1989) periods, wished for the peace and happiness of children, and was active as an artist.
