Mukai Junkichi: A Record of Exchange

Overview

Mukai Junkichi is known for his paintings of thatched folk dwellings, made over an approximately 40-year period beginning in 1945. Born in Kyoto in 1901, Mukai built a studio in the Tsurumaki area of Setagaya in 1933 and devoted himself to his work. This exhibition, dealing primarily with Mukai’s painting, is structured around the artist’s diverse and heartfelt essays. We also present works and documents related to a wide range of people that appear alongside Mukai in his writings, allowing viewers to retrace the painter’s footsteps.
