Chihiro Art Museum Collection: Leaping Out of the Picture Book World

The Chihiro Art Museum Collection contains not only original picture book art but also three-dimensional works created by picture book artists. We present a number of these three-dimensional works depicting a range of subjects, including people, animals, birds and fish, created from familiar materials by such artists as Evgeniĭ Rachëv from Russia, known for his picture book The Mitten, Józef Wilkoń from Poland, and Ryoji Arai from Japan.
