Birthplace Japan
Year of birth 1912 (1948)
Matsumoto was one of the most highly acclaimed Japanese modern painters. He contributed to the establishment of a new art association and was seen as one of the most promising figures in postwar painting, but passed away at an early age. In this exhibition we present letters written to his wife and son who had evacuated around the end of the war, containing a universal message about how artists perceive the world and approach the creation of work that is just as valid today as it was then.
