"...Motonaga’s late works have taken decades to come to the attention of the West; however, the influence of these post-1966 works in Japan has been extremely profound, and his images are among the most recognizable in Japanese pop culture. Motonaga considered his paintings, children’s books, public artworks, and sculptural installations to be equal, and his work was critically and commercially embraced. The first of his twenty-six children’s books was released in 1973, and several of these have been in print continuously since their publication. Included in our 2015 exhibition are his original drawings for Moko MokoMoko, a children’s book with more than one million copies in circulation in Japan."
