Museum Collection I
Ayako Yodoi and Toshio Yodoi

Overview

Born in Setagaya in 1943, Ayako Yodoi is the oldest daughter of the sculptor Toshio Yodoi (1911-2005). After completing a postgraduate course at Tokyo University of the Arts, she went to study in France. On a trip to Egypt during her stay, Yodoi was strongly inspired by the country's climate to begin making abstract paintings with planes of brilliant color. In recent years, Yodoi has used Egyptian landscapes as a motif to attain a freer style of expression marked by bold brushstrokes. In this exhibition, we introduce several aspects of one of the Setagaya's most prominent artistic families through a number of newly acquired oil paintings and prints by Ayako Yodoi and her father's sculptures.


*The Glass Works of Yoshio Hamada
In this small exhibit, we present 18 transparent blown-glass works by Yoshio Hamada (1944-2011), the fifth son of the ceramic artist Shoji Hamada. Viewers are certain to enjoy the charms of the serene, organic forms and colors of these glass vessels, tea bowls, water container, and vases among them, which create a perfect harmony with Japanese spaces.
