Naondo Nakamura: Retrospective Exhibition

Born in a small village in Nagano, Naondo Nakamura (1905-81) was a well-established sculptor by the time of World War II. After moving to Paris with his family in 1952, he shifted his focus to painting, returning to sculpting again later in life. Although recognized as a sculptor-turned-painter, Nakamura’s gouache series showed his continuing interest in and the influence of three-dimensional art. After returning to Japan in 1964, he hosted an exhibition of such works that produced while in France.
This comprehensive exhibition presents Nakamura’s earlier wooden sculptures, sculptures he created based on his experiences of serving as a correspondent during the war and two-dimensional works he produced while living in Paris. (Yukari Tanaka)
