For many of us, the illustrations that we came across in the picture books of our childhood were our first introduction to fine art. One publication that took this idea to heart was “Children’s World,” which featured illustrations by two pioneers of art for children, Takeo Takei and Shigeru Hatsuyama. The celebrated Japanese industrial designer Yoshio Akioka was inspired by these Showa period images in his youth, and this exhibition features works by all three figures, with an aim of showing how the pictures we love as children inform our creative style later in life.
