Yozo Hamaguchi (1909-2000) is an artist active in the latter half of the 20th century. He pioneered a new technique called color mezzotint, and produced color expressions with soft depth and tranquility.

Among copper-plate engravings, mezzotint in particular, is one of the unfamiliar techniques in Japan, but it has a unique texture that one will never forget once seeing it.

In this exhibition, together with Yozo Hamaguchi’s works, novels about print works by mezzotint are introduced. They are a ghost story by British author Montague Rhodes James (1862-1936), a science fiction novel about time by Kaoru Kitamura (1949-), and a brilliant short story by Kunio Tsukamoto (1920-2005) who is also a poet.

The print works in these novels carry the atmosphere of their respective eras and each work have an irreplaceable sense of presence within the novel. Please appreciate the feeling of mezzotint in literature along with approximately 50 copper-plate engravings by Yozo Hamaguchi.
