Toshiko Takaezu (1922-2011) was one of the twentieth century's greatest abstract artists. Gifted with prodigious drive and vision, she combined inspirations from her own cultural background with currents from contemporary painting and sculpture, arriving at a unique expressionist idiom. Throughout the artist's lifetime, her work was exhibited widely in the United States and Japan, including a solo exhibition at the Philadelphia Museum of Art (2004) and a retrospective at the National Museum of Modern Art in Kyoto, Japan (1995). Takaezu was the recipient of a McInerny Foundation Grant (1952), Tiffany Foundation Grant (1964), National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship (1980), Watershed Legends Award (2007), and Konjuhosho Award (2010). Additionally, she was named a Living Treasure of Hawaii in 1987 and received the National Living Treasure Award from the University of North Carolina in 1994. Takaezu received honorary doctorate degrees from Lewis and Clark College (1987), Moore College of Art and Design (1992), University of Hawaii (1993), Princeton University (1996), and Skidmore College (2004). 

The artist is the subject of numerous publications including journal essays, exhibition catalogs, and monographs and her work is represented in many museum collections including the Art Institute of Chicago, DeYoung/Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco, Honolulu Museum of Art, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and Smithsonian American Art Museum. Takaezu passed away in Honolulu on March 9, 2011.
