Catalogues from Mary Blair Tokyo Exhibition

"The Colors of Mary Blair" was an exhibition at the Tokyo Museum of Contemporary Art held this past Summer. The exhibition closed just this month and, for those who were not lucky enough to see it, the exhibition catalogue will be available (if it is not already available) through the bookstore at the Museum of Cartoon Art in San Francisco. Contact Heather Plunkett at the bookstore for more information.

The catalogue text is mostly in Japanese, but there are a few preface essays - by Pete Doctor, John Canemaker, Charles Solomon, and some family relations - that are presented in English. This catalogue presents more of Mary's work more accurately reproduced to show original color than any previous publication of her work.
