L'Homme qui Plantait des Arbres

Exhibition Outline

Frédéric Back (born 1924, Saarbrücken, currently living in Montreal) has won two Academy Awards. With cooperation from Studio Ghibli, this exhibition will present his most famous animation, 'The Man Who Planted Trees', as well as approximately 1,000 valuable works, including original artwork from his representative works and drawings produced while he was living in France until 1948. It will be the first comprehensive introduction to the imaginative world he creates through his art, a world which presents a rich insight into the environment, Native American culture and the problems facing the world today.
