We said the binding, cover picture, cut which Tsuguji Fujita dealt with
We introduce mainly on "work of book".
For 1,913 years when Tsuguji Fujita (1886-1968 years) went over to Paris, a lot of books which assumed original prints such as Picasso or Chagall illustration were the times of the published illustration book prosperity. Nude woman image which we announced in 1921 attracted attention and was praised highly very much as "the splendid milky-white ground", and Fujita wrestled for production of illustration book energetically at the same time to establish firm position in Paris painting circles. In the 1920s, we deal with illustration book that it is more than in 30 points of Fujita, but, judging from illustration book which Picasso dealt with at the same period having been around ten points, are indicated how Fujita was attracted in the world of illustration book. We returned home at one time in 1929, and Fujita who settled down in Japan from the next 1,933 years continued work of illustration book while we were rolled up in torrent of the times called World War II till we left Japan in 1949. Japanese literary person, poet who had friendship from the Paris times, most of work (collaboration) with cultured people must have pushed forward writing brush while reminding of memory for the ground called France, and they are various surprisingly, and it is expressed in particular by Fujita's original sensitivity and interpretation.
We introduce mainly on "every this auspicious decoration for gifts" which Fujita dealt with particularly in Japan by book exhibition in France and Japan which can be called two mother countries from 1920s through 40s for Fujita. In addition, we allot spot for living in atelier of Kojimachi ward Rokubancho (existing Rokubancho, Chiyoda-ku) that spent 1937 through 44, and valuable record that photographer Ken Domon photographed at the time is going to introduce. In space called one "book", we must be able to find talent and view of the world of Fujita where it is the same as what is expressed or it was condensed further by oil painting image.
