Celebrating their 850th anniversary with an expansive collection of woodblock by Clifton KARHU2022.10.01(Sat) - 2022.11.14 (Mon) 10:00 - 16:00
The Tolman Collection is pleased to present "Celebrating their 850th anniversary with an expansive collection of woodblock by Clifton KARHU" at Zojoji Temple in Tokyo, Japan. Clifton Karhu (1927-2007) was born in Duluth, Minnesota, U.S.A., and immigrated to Japan in 1955, where he lived for 52 years, creating woodblock prints of Kyoto town houses and Japanese cityscapes. In addition to prints, he produced ink paintings and painted ceramics, and always wore a kimono, a style of "Japanese" not seen among contemporary Japanese. In this exhibition, we will display and sell about 60 works from the Fuji series, which is particularly popular among the approximately 1500 works produced by Clifton Karhu during his lifetime, as well as prints published for The Tolman Collection.
This year marks the 15th anniversary of Karhu's death. In addition to Clifton Karhu's woodblock prints and ink drawings from the 1960s to his later years, the exhibition will also feature works by his son and student Joel Karhu, who was also a member of The Tolman Collection. The Tolman Collection will introduce the artist's achievements from the 1960s to his later years, along with works by his son and apprentice, Joel Karhu.
