Taniuchi Rokuro

TANIUCHI Rokuro’s Works; from the covers of the weekly magazine Shukan Shincho
Arai Ryoji's Selection Every week I used to see Taniuchi Rokuro

2023 Sat July 8 〜 2023 Sun October 1

Closed: Mon. August 7, Mon. September 4

In the TANIUCHI Rokuro Pavilion, we display the original paintings for the covers of the weekly magazine Shukan Shincho. Creating them was the life work of Taniuchi Rokuro (1921-1981), who produced 1,300 of them. Here we present a selection from that huge oeuvre of fifty paintings at a time, changing the exhibits four times a year. The choice of paintings is based on a variety of themes, with a new theme chosen for each exhibition.

Here is the Taniuchi's cover art chosen by Ryoji Arai, who is active as a picture book author.
Mr. Arai, who captures the world with an innocent childlike gaze, what kind of works attract Taniuchi? Through Mr. Arai's eyes, this exhibition rediscovers the charm of the cover painting, which depicts various children.
