In January 1979, Genichiro Inokuma (1902-93) looked back on his life in the Nihon Keizai Shimbun’s popular column, “My Resume” (Watashi no Rirekisho). In a light-hearted vein, he wrote of how he was raised in pastoral surroundings in Kagawa, Shikoku—a child with a love of drawing pictures, then went out into the wide world and forged a career as a painter through hard work while befriending people of all backgrounds. Drawing from Inokuma’s recollections, this two-part exhibition will survey his life and work through artworks and materials related to episodes in his artistic career. Part I of the exhibition will trace his development from childhood and middle school to his art college years and studies in Paris in his late thirties.
