Meetup Description: Shoichi Kabashima Exhibition and fall Foliage at Rikugien

I am very sorry for the last minutes posting of this event, but I would like to get together with some of you in this coming Sunday and check out works by Shoichi Kabashima and fall foliage at Rikugien.

Shoichi Kabashima was an illustrator who was active in Japan during 20s and 30s. I have never seen his works in person, but was captivated by them when I went through his recently published monograph. What struck me most was his rendering skill. Some of his illustrations do look like old black and white photographs, and they reminded me of hyperrealist drawings by Robert Longo from 80s. I definitely would like to see the actual drawings while I have an opportunity to do so.

Rikugien is a garden which was built during the Edo period. It supposedly is one of the two best gardens in Tokyo from the era. I have heard that it is a great place to see fall foliage, and they illuminate the place in the evening during the foliage season. The sun will be set at 4:30 PM on the 23rd, so we will be able to see foliage under different light conditions if we get there around 4PM.
