It is the scenery of the Chimei Hamada Exhibition, which was held from Dec. 14th, 2007 to Jan. 27th, 2008 at the Uffizi Gallery. During the same term, Rembrant exhibition was also held in the next room.


The Uffizi Museum houses the collection of the Mudici. It is renowned worldwide for its great collections of the Renaissance art including The Birth of Venus by Sandro Botticelli, Annunciation by Leonardo da Vinci and other works by Italian Renaissance masters such as Michelangelo Buonarroti, Raffaello Santi and so on. Getting collected and holding an exhibition in the museum, which has over 400 years of history, were rare cases. Both one-man exhibition and being housed in the museum are the historic achievements so that Japanese artist has accomplished none of them before.


We interviewed some visitors about the works by Chimei Hamada. Looking at a painting, Elegy for a New Conscript: A Flabby Sun Rises, one of them highly praised it and said: “it is a true masterpiece that depicts the vast continent in its small surface and everlasting way that imply the suffering of war.”
