Sakubei Yamamoto Exhibition

Sakubei Yamamoto Exhibition

18th Sept - 17th Dec 2017

Visit our new Community Exhibition Space to find exhibitions by visiting artists.

This quarter from September to 17th December 2017 we are delighted to be exhibiting the fascinating work of world renowned Japanese miner painter Sakubei Yamamoto (1892-1984).

His works are important social history, including as they do, not only works showing life down the mines for women and children as well as men, but also scenes of daily life in mining towns which are fascinating. The pictures present quite a different picture of Japan to that which most people are used to.

Sakubei features in the UNESCO Memory of the World register.
