Speaker: Andreas Marks, Ph.D.,
Originally a painter trained in oil, Hagiwara Hideo (1913-2007) turned to printmaking in 1954. From the start his prints were of an abstract nature, and for 50 years he was a constant innovator in his choice of motifs, style and technique. With an oeuvre of over 600 different prints, this lecture provides an introduction into the life and works of Hagiwara Hideo. It is held in connection with the first major U.S. retrospective exhibition of Hagiwara’s prints at the Minneapolis Institute of Art.
Andreas Marks studied East Asian Art History at the University of Bonn and obtained his Ph.D. in Japanese Studies from Leiden University with a thesis on nineteenth century actor prints. From 2008 to 2013 he was director and chief curator of the Clark Center for Japanese Art in Hanford, California, and since 2013 has been Mary Griggs Burke Curator and Head of the Japanese and Korean Art Department at the Minneapolis Institute of Art. He is the author of TASCHEN’s “Hiroshige & Eisen: The Sixty-Nine Stations along the Kisokaido” and “Japanese Woodblock Prints (1680–1938)”. His sixteenth book, “Hokusai: Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji,” will come out in mid-2021.
