Kyoto International Manga Museum is pleased to host an exhibition showcasing roughly 300 original works by Jiro Taniguchi, a manga artist for over 50 years. Jiro Taniguchi’s work leaves a deep impression on his readers through his profound stories, sometimes lyrical, and sometimes humorous, with detailed drawing and compositions. His outstanding workmanship and authorship are highly regarded worldwide, and he has many enthusiastic fans in Europe, particularly in France.
By appreciating his original pictures in detail, through his fine penwork, and layering and shaving of screentones, you can feel the trajectory of his soul as an artist, made up of vivid and gentle colors which are rooted in the colors of nature.
Additionally, there are many discoveries which can only be made by viewing original artwork, and we have prepared a display corner that distills 10 points on ‘How to view original manga’ using Taniguchi’s work as examples. This corner can be called the “Taniguchi Jiro version” of the exhibition “Genga no Mikata” (How to view original drawings), which was held at the Masuda Manga Museum in Yokote City and more.
