Abstract

17" x 14" print depicting the Biblical story of the flight into Egypt, stencil print (kappazuri). Watanabe is, perhaps, the most famous Christian Japanese print-maker. His work is in collections from South Africa to Australia, from the Philippines to Europe. Institutions with his work include the Museums of Modern Art of Tokyo and New York, the Honolulu Academy of Arts, the British Museum, and the Haifa Museum. 10 of Watanabe’s prints are on permanent display in the Vatican Museum of Modern Art. Watanabe has had innumerable shows in the US, Japan, Brussels, the Netherlands, China, Germany, Denmark, and Indonesia and has won the prizes of the Folk Art Museum, the Japanese Print Association, and the Kokuga sosaku kyokai. He was twice invited to this country by the Lutheran Church of America and has honorary degrees from such Christian schools as Linfield College, McMinniville, OR and Valpariso University, IN. He won the Confessor of Christ Award from Christ Seminary Seminex in cooperation with the Lutheran School of Theology, Chicago, and before his death in 1996, received the Distinguished Contribution to Christian Culture Award from the Christian Literature Society of Japan.
