2018是日本畫家岩崎知弘(1918~1974)的生誕百年紀念年。
岩崎知弘的畫作以童書為主軸,55年的生涯當中留下了近萬件作品。
這次台灣國立歷史博物館特別從「ちひろ美術館」(東京・安曇野)所藏的作品中選出100件原畫,以及岩崎知弘生前喜愛的一些用品等等,
分為6個篇章展出。在日本以外的地方舉辦這樣大規模的原畫展,本展算是首開記錄之先。

岩崎知弘畫作裡的孩子們,通常置身在四季各式花卉與情境中。
她的水彩畫作用色豐富,並且巧妙地運用水來表現顏色的濃淡渲染效果,這或許可以歸功於她年輕時學過在中國、日本甚為流行的「書法」,
因而擅長運筆以及掌握墨與水之間的關係。人們說她即使沒有模特兒,也能畫出小孩子的任何一種姿勢模樣,這應該是鑽研無數素描才累積得來的功力。
她畫作裡的孩子眼眸是圓潤的、嘴角是輕閉的,這個表情特徵不只是可愛而已,也透出一股力道,讓觀畫者感受到孩子的尊嚴。

岩崎知弘過世四十多年了。世界快速改變著,因為技術的進步,許多當時做不到的事情,現在都已經成為可能。
岩崎知弘說過:「經濟不斷成長,相對地,人心恐怕會漸漸失去豐盈從容。年輕人多半不會注意這個,不過我很早就發現到這一點,也希望大家多思考一下什麼是豐盈和從容」。
期盼透過本次展覽,無論是孩童或大人,能夠一起享受岩崎知弘的作品世界,並且攜手朝向和平美好的未來邁進。

Japanese artist Chihiro Iwasaki (1918-1974) was born 100 years ago.
Her paintings mostly appear in children’s books. She leaves nearly 10,000 pieces of works behind her.
National Museum of History selects 100 original paintings, as well as her favorite tools, from Chihiro Art Museum collection, and exhibits in six sections. This is the first major Chihiro Iwasaki exhibition overseas.

Children in Iwasaki’s illustrations are often surrounded by flowers and seasonal scenarios. Her paintings are colorful, and she uses water and ink skillfully to demonstrate various shades.
It may attribute to her calligraphy experiences, which were popular in Japan and China in her youth. Even without models, people say, Iwasaki can describe all kinds of poses and gestures of children.
This skill is developed after countless sketches and practices.
Features like round eyes and loosely closed lips in these figures are not only adorable, but also representative of power and dignity.

Chihiro Iwasaki has passed away for over 40 years.
The world has come a long way. Many impossible ideas become possible due to technology advances.
“Economy continues to grow,” she once said, “but our minds gradually lose essence and pace. Young people mostly do not pay attention to it, but I’ve noticed this change from early one.
I hope everyone can think about essence and pace.” We hope every visitor, young or old, will be able to enjoy her world and works in this exhibition, and move towards a peaceful and beautiful future.
