Ronin Gallery invites you to explore Tadashi Nakayama’s technical brilliance and unfettered creativity in the exhibition Nakayama’s Horses. Tadashi Nakayama (1927-2014) was a leading woodblock print artist in Post-War Japan whose works can be found in the permanent collections of museums throughout the world. Over the course of his career he explored the equine image through light, texture, and embellishment with increasing intricacy. With most woodblock prints composed of over fifty overlaid impressions, Nakayama’s horses seem to burst from the paper, while each detail draws the audience deeper into the image.
