Hashimoto Heihachi and Kitasono Katue
Unusual Pair of Brothers, a Sculptor and a Poet

Overview

Hashimoto Heihachi made wood sculpture with uniquely spiritual qualities. Kitasono Katue participated in the avant-garde art movements of the 1920s and attracted attention by his participation in the international “concrete poetry” movement following World War II. These brothers from Mie prefecture lived together for a while in Taishido in Setagaya during the Taisho period. Although their creative activities took different directions, they admired each other’s work, influenced each other, and helped deepen each other’s expression. This exhibition includes approximately 100 pieces of sculpture and a number of paintings by Hashimoto Heihachi and provides an overview of Kitasono Katue’s diverse creative work, taken mainly from the collection of John Solt living in Los Angeles, a scholar who has written on Kitasono.
