Japanese art in America has seldom been discussed even though artists — such as Yasuo Kuniyoshi — reached prominence especially in the period between the two world wars. Kuniyoshi’s art and creativity were said to rival those of his contemporaries, including Edward Hopper, Georgia O’Keeffe and Stuart Davis. Chiura Obata, another Japanese emigre, became one of the most significant California-based artists and Japanese American cultural leaders of the century. Roger Shimamura, working during the second half of the century, combined American pop culture images with Japanese woodblock prints inspired by his own experiences of racism and by the diaries that his grandmother kept over a period of fifty-six years. Join us for a docent-led discussion of these artists. RSVP to park21217@aol.com for Zoom meeting information. Hosted by North Bethesda Village.
