Certificate of authenticity by Archive Yasuo Sumi ID 305

Work of great historical importance by Yasuo Sumi: it was exhibited at the historic 9th Gutai Art Exhibition, 1960, Osaka, Takashimaya; displayed and published in the exhibition "Kaiga no Arashi show at Osaka National Museum of Art" in 1985, with catalog; displayed and published in the exhibition catalog "Action and Emotion, 50s Paintings, Informel, Gutai, Cobra", Osaka National Museum of Art, p. 85, September-November 1985. During the Golden years of the Gutai movement Yasuo Sumi realized very few works on such large canvases and it is estimated that the ones made in the early 1960s are no more than fifteen. The fact that this work was displayed in such important historic exhibitions makes it one of the most important within Sumi’s whole artistic production.

Work exhibited at Galerie Sander, Germany in 1992; it was also displayed in various exhibitions in Japan. Work of great significance within the production of Shozo Shimamoto for various reasons: 1) the year of execution, in 1991, is important as the few bottle crash Shimamoto realized in the early 1990s were executed in the same way as the very rare ones he made in the 50s / 60s post-cannon period: the glass bottles shattered against the stones cast their shards and slivers onto the canvas; 2)its high quality; 3) the numerous exhibitions it took part in, notedly the one held at the Sander Gallery in 1992.
