Drop of Dreams
by Toshiko Okanoue
Publisher's Description
In 1950, while studying fashion drawing in Japan, Toshiko Okanoue had no confidence in her ability to draw and claimed to know almost nothing about the history of art. Working with scissors, paste and a stack of lifestyle and fashion magazines, she cut out the photographs that - in her own words - "fit my dreams." Seen at the time as "a contemporary version of Alice in Wonderland," they are perhaps most remarkable for what they represent: a young Japanese woman’s perception of the Western way of life at mid-century. Published to coincide with an exhibition of Okanoue's collages at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
