Serizawa: Master of Japanese Textile Design

10/09/2009 - 01/17/2010

Designated a Living National Treasure, Serizawa Keisuke (1895–1984) was one of the greatest artists of twentieth-century Japan. Serizawa used stencil-dyeing techniques to create irresistible works of art that range from screens and kimonos to magazine designs and book covers. Dramatic in design, Serizawa’s textiles have a beauty and expressive power that far transcend expectation of a “craft” medium. The combination of Serizawa’s originality and vitality with the natural beauty of his materials—cotton, silk, hemp, and other fibers decorated with the brilliant yet warm hues of natural dyes—will make this show an unmissable visual feast.
