日本現代アート透明賞 JCATP 2020

Japanese Contemporary Art Transparency Prize 日本現代アート透明賞のウェブサイ トより:

Main criteria in selecting HAYASHI Yoko 林 洋子 as JCATP recipient was her success in bringing two “war paintings” (戦争画) by painter and, in our opinion, war criminal Léonard Foujita (レオナール・フジタ) for the first time to an exhibition outside of Japan. 
“Final Fighting on Attu”「アッツ島玉砕」(1943) and “Compatriots on Saipan Island Remain Faithful to the End”「サイパン島同胞臣節を全うす」(1945) had been prominently installed in her curated show “Foujita, Œuvres d’une vie (1886-1968)” in Paris, 2019.
