I am having difficulty finding information about a Japanese
artist, Sofu Teshigahara, (born Toyko, 1900). Since this
listserve is so international in scope, I'm hoping someone out
there might be able to help me.
Teshigahara had a solo exhibition of wood sculpture at the
Martha Jackson Gallery in New York in 1959. Along with his
reputation as a sculptor, he was known as a master of the art of
flower arranging in Japan.
Does anyone know of any museums holding his work? Is there a
gallery in Japan representing his estate, assuming he's no
longer alive? Any leads would be appreciated!
The past president of Guilford College donated a large,
rough-hewn carved wood sculpture by Teshigahara to the college's
art gallery this year. It's attracting a lot of attention and
I'd like to be able to tell our visitors more about the artist.
I really enjoy this listserve. It's a wonderful inspiration
and resource. Thanks!
