Journey of a Legend
The Footprints of Youth was executed during one of the most fascinating periods of Kusama Yayoi's legendary career. After an explosive rise to global superstardom in New York in the 1960s, Kusama moved back to Tokyo permanently in 1973 and underwent a creative renaissance while re-assimilating into Japanese society. The artist retreated into a psychiatric hospital in 1977 and commenced a diligent studio practice – one which involved not just painting but various other modes of creative production, even publishing her first novel Manhattan Suicide Addict in 1978. During this time, Kusama wrote prolifically, creating both fiction and poems. Works from this period are distinctly more literary and richly narrative, and the present work's lyrical abstract patterns are testament to the extraordinary personal and artistic journey undertaken by one of the greatest artists of our time.
