Sculptor Shindo Tsuji is also known as a printmaker. It was Tsuji, then professor at the sculpture course, who brought the first pressing machine to the Kyoto City University of Arts, and began to experiment with prints. This is a caricature in which he depicts with his typical sense of humor a long line of people queuing up in front of a museum in order to view works of art. The works the visitors are flocking to the museum for were perhaps brought in from France – or so one would guess from the Tricolour that makes up the background, and as such forms a rather funny contrast with the Japanese flag painted onto the museum’s wall.
