Machida City Museum of Graphic Arts held an exhibition of Chimei Hamada, who reached the age of 100 in 2017.


Chimei Hamada was highly evaluated by his copperplate prints “Elegy for a New Conscript” series, which were produced from his own harsh war experience in his 20s. After that, he expresses society, human and himself through keen and humorous viewpoint. In 1979, Albertina National Museum of Art, Vienna, Austria organized Chimei Hamada Exhibition. This exhibition also shown at the Graz State Museum of Modern Art, Graz, Austria. In 1993, one-man exhibition was held at the Japan Gallery of The British Museum, London. In 2007, Uffizi Museum held a first one-man exhibition as a Japanese artist. His artworks are highly valued not only in Japan but also all over the world.


This exhibition introduced about 90 pieces of his copperplate prints and 4 sculptures from his entire career. And the copperplate prints by the other leading artists in that period were also exhibited, including Tetsuro Komai, Eikyu, Yozo Hamaguchi, Masuo Ikeda and so on.
