Yosuke Inoue’s Oddball, Delightful, Suspicious and Agreeable Picture Books
Yosuke Inoue was active across a variety of artistic genres, including picture books, cartoons and illustrations. In this exhibition we will feature a range of his artwork, including tableaux and cartoons, with a focus on the picture book creation process. On display will be selections from Inoue’s first picture book,Odango pan, along with the belovedKuma no ko Ūfuand illustrations from original picture books he produced starting in the 1970s. We hope that you will enjoy the unique world of Inoue’s art, which fuses nonsense and humor with his unnerving depictive style.
Held every first and third Saturday of the month, from 2:00 p.m. Museum staff will provide commentary while viewing artwork on display in exhibition rooms.
