Very rare work on canvas by Mukai dated 1960: the artist in a moment of madness in November 1965 burnt all the works in his studio (this is documented in the Ashiya Museum in Japan), thus, the ones from the 1960-65 period that were saved were really very few, so extremely rare and important as this one is.

Certificate of authenticity by Associazione Shozo Shimamoto with Archive no. 359 hand signed by the artist

Literature: "Shozo Shimamoto, recent works", from 10/05/18 to 30/06/18 at Galleria Dellupi Arte, Milano with label on the reverse, pp. 34, 35, 36, 37. Work displayed in the above exhibition as stated in the label on the reverse. Work belonging to an important performance by Shimamoto; here is an excerpt from an interview by Andrea Mardegan of the Shozo Shimamoto Association in which he asks the Master: “ One of your most important works in recent times is the monument to peace of Heiwa no Akashi a Shin Nishinomiya, the cement arena that you regenerate by casting bottles of color paint every year, on the condition that Japan does not enter war?” Shimamoto answers.: “It all started in 1986 when Bern Porter came to visit me. Bern Porter was a nuclear physicist that had participated in Project Manhattan during the Second World War, but who was shocked by the fact that a bomb was detonated over Hiroshima despite the emperor’s surrender… Bern Porter deeply regretted his contribution to the experiment, became a correspondence artist and began making pilgrimages around the world to ask for forgiveness. In my studio he cried, saying that to expiate his sins eight death sentences would not suffice. In that moment, I decided to promote world peace and shared my pacifist ideas with him. After learning of my activities, Bern Porter suggested me as a candidate for the Nobel Peace prize, which I did not win. I have, however, continued to promote peace and in 1999 gave light to the Heiwa no Akashi project”.
