Art Talk Live: Yasuo Kuniyoshi’s Last Act

Presented by Harvard Art Museums at Harvard Art Museums, Cambridge MA

Art Talk Live: Yasuo Kuniyoshi’s Last Act

Yasuo Kuniyoshi, Japanese, Last Act, 1949. Casein on paper. Harvard Art Museums/Fogg Museum, Gift of Mr. and Mrs. Stanley Marcus, 1981.210. © Estate of Yasuo Kuniyoshi/Artists Rights Society (ARS), New York.

Issues of cultural identity, patriotism, and prejudice are explored in Yasuo Kuniyoshi’s bold and introspective drawing Last Act.

Yasuo Kuniyoshi once proclaimed that “an artist’s drawings are his first words.” Having emigrated from Japan to the United States at the age of 16, Kuniyoshi relied upon drawing as his most expressive medium. Through drawing, he translated the anxiety, disillusionment, and alienation faced by Japanese émigrés in the aftermath of World War II into a uniquely personal and dynamic American modernist style.
