Isao Mizutani was one of the leading post-war Japanese avant-garde artists, unfortunately not well-known outside Japan. His works are represented in all national Japanese museums. Recently his paintings have been featured at A Feverish Era: Art Informel and the Expansion of Japanese Artistic Expression in the 1950's and '60's in the National Museum of Modern Art, Kyoto.

The Gallery G-77 exhibition presents his works from the 1960's, when the artist moved beyond the topic of pain caused by the crush of humanity during Japan’s wartime totalitarianism and created perhaps some of the most exuberant pieces in his career.
