Curated by Dr. Felice Fischer, the Luther W. Brady Curator of Japanese Art and Curator of East Asian Art, and John Ittmann, the Curator of Prints, the exhibition, "Munakata Shiko: Japanese Master of the Modern Print," opened at the PMA on July 27, 2002. The exhibition was a retrospective of artist Munakata Shiko's body of work, spanning many phases of his career. Included were 100 prints, as well as paintings, calligraphy, and ceramics. In 1959, Munakata visited Philadelphia during his first visit to the United States, and created his first series of lithographs, which were only shown in Philadelphia during this exhibition. After its run at the PMA, the exhibition closed at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. The records include planning, administrative, catalogue, and object files. The bulk of the records are from 2002.
