Yayoi Kusama Art Book

Yayoi Kusama

A Publication of Kodansha USA

  • Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama is one of the most innovative and influential creative forces of the last sixty years
  • Straddles the worlds of fine art, pop culture, and high fashion
  • Small, reasonably-priced, beautifully-illustrated volume accessible to readers interested in any of these different areas
  • Juxtaposes Kusama's art with her poetry (in both English and Japanese) and photos of her in a way that offers insights into the artist and woman
  • In 2008, Christie's New York sold a Kusama painting painting for $5.1 million, then a record for a living female artist
  • A recent retrospective at the Whitney Museum in NYC and her collaboration on a collection for Louis Vuitton attracted huge media attention
  • Kusama's work is in collections of leading museums around the world including MoMA, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Walker Art Center (Minneapolis), and The Mattress Factory (Philadelphia)
