Japanese Prints: The Psychedelic Seventies

Exhibition Museum of Fine Arts Boston



The first World’ s Fair held in East Asia, Expo ‘70 in Osaka, marked the beginning of an extraordinary period of prosperity for Japan that lasted over a decade. To a greater extent than ever before, Japan participated in the development of the global art styles of the time-in particular, the mind-bending motifs and chromatic verve of psychedelic art. Japanese fashion designers showed their work in Paris, Japanese architects won major commissions around the world, and Japanese graphic design appeared on album covers of internationally renowned music groups such as Santana and Miles Davis.

The brilliant colors, strong design sense, and exuberant vitality typical of the 1970s also appear in prints. During this time, the range of media employed by Japanese print artists expanded to include not only the woodblock and stencil prints that had been dominant in the previous decade, but also silkscreen, etching, and lithography. Works such as Yokoo Tadanori’ s 1974 silkscreen, pictured above, resonate with the tenor of the age, melding Buddhist iconography with an electric palette. Among the new, younger artists who rose to prominence were a number of women, part of a gradually increasing trend toward gender equality in the arts. Many of the artists featured in this exhibition-including Tadanori, Takeda Hideo, and Oda Mayumi-are still creating prints today.

Struggle for power Prints by Takeda Hideo

10 September – 27 November 2016



Discover the fascinating story behind the Struggle for Power Prints by Takeda Hideo. The prints by this contemporary Japanese artist illustrate the intriguing tale of the Genpei War (1180-1185) and the bloody battle between the Taira and Minamoto families. The 'family feud' is a recurring theme in Japanese art and literature, so too in the works of the artist Takeda Hideo (1948). His Genpei print series has been praised for its great attention to detail and rousing imagery in the struggle for power. Characteristic of Takeda's Work is the use of 'uncanny images' and fanciful erotica. Takeda's unique graphic style takes a contemporary look at this age-old struggle.


On September 9th at the Siebold house,Princess Laurentien will make a speech at the openning ceremony.

Big Success in Turkey Followed by Success in China for Solo Exhibition

Takeda was  invited as the  only Japanese judge amongst other European and American cartoonists for Turkey's  biggest International Cartoon Exhibition in 2012.

This led to Takeda's solo exhibition in Istanbul's Schneider Temple Art Gallery as the first Japanese artist.

The exhibition lasted for 3 months from May 15th, 2014.

"Turkey's economy is now bubbling, and art is hobby for the riches.

  There are some things considered as taboo in the Islamic world, the potential of the art is yet unknown." says Takeda.

Nevertheless, Takeda's works are highly regarded in Turkey's art world.

Offered a Gift of Golden Folding Screen to Zuiganji-Temple in Matsushima,  which Suffered a Great Damage from 3.11 Earthquake

April 8th is known as  "Hana Matsuri " or flower festival to  celebrate Buddha's Birthday.

On this day, Takeda offered a pair of golden folding screen to one of the most famous temple, Zuiganji-Temple in Matsushima, to wish for the recovery from the disaster.

On a big golden folding screens (180cm X 310cm), flowers of cherry blossoms are painted on rotten tree barks.

The ceremony of offering began at 3 pm with sutra recitation by 10 monks. Takeda says that was his first time to ever listen to Rinzai Zen's sutra recitation and  was very much moved.

While the cherry blossoms were budding, there were only few tourists.

In a cedar grove, the temple precinct was filled in solemn stillness.



Joint Exhibition with 60's Charisma-Tomi Ungerer was Featured in Front Page for Local French Newspapers.

Tomi Ungerer is an author of the popular picture book, "The Three Robbers" (1961).

He is actually one of the most influential illustrator and writer in the 60's and 70's, and he appointed Takeda for joint exhibition in France in December of 2009 which attracted big attention.

One of the significant news in Europe, but not widely known in Japan.
