Exhibition Poster of the Shunyokai Art Association Designed by Kimura Shohachi
[Japan] The Shunyokai was founded in 1922 by a group of Japanese artists including Adachi Gen'ichiro, Kurata Hakuyo, Kosugi Ho'on, Yamamoto Kanae, and Kimura Shohachi (1893-1958), who designed this poster. Their first exhibition was held in 1923 although no poster appears to have been made. This is the first known poster of the Shunyokai exhibition and was made for their second exhibition that was held at the Mitsukoshi department store in 1924. The Shunyokai still exists today and has about 270 members.
