About the artist:
A contemporary Japanese painter, sculptor and printmaker, Takesada Matsutani has been exhibiting his abstract art in major exhibitions in Europe, America and Japan since the early 1960's. Some of the most important printmaking exhibitions his art has been featured include the 1986 exhibition at the Musee de Louvain-la-Neuve, France (along with Chillida, Tapies, Miro and others) and the 1987 showing at the Galerie Eugen Lendl, in Graz. As well, a Matsutani lithograph was awarded a Bronze Prize at the Osaka Triennale in 1990. Many galleries around the world now include Matsutani's original art in their permanent collections. Some of these are the Davison Art Center, Wesleyan University, the Museum of Art, Lodz, the Museum of Contemporary Arts, Helsinki, and the National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC.
