Bundeskunsthalle Bonn | DE
08.10.2015 – 21.02.2016
The Bundeskunsthalle is hosting the first European presentation of the most important Japanese collections of early Modernism. Until now, the western world has been largely unaware of the fact that French Modernist paintings were also collected in the Far Eastern island kingdom.
Over 100 first-rate works by French Impressionists and Post-Impressionists, such as Monet, Manet, Gauguin, Pissarro, Cézanne, Signac, and Bonnard to name but a few make up the core of the show. This selection is supplemented by impressive works created by Japanese artists before 1920, who, inspired by the French artists, developed paintings in the Western style, thus paving the way for modern Japanese art.
