6 July-15 August 2005.
This exhibition is devoted to Japanese paintings and engravings from Ukiyo-e - the floating world -, an art movement that portrays urban society in 18th- and 19th-century Edo, as Tokyo was formerly known. Specialists will be delighted to discover or rediscover works by grand masters such as Harunobu, Utamaro and Hiroshige, while all visitors will be keen to admire this subtle and delicate art.
The works presented come from the Ota Memorial museum of art in Tokyo. Paris is privileged to host this exhibition, as it is the first time that the paintings and engravings leave Japan. The exhibition will last only six weeks, due to some of the pieces high sensitivity to light. Entry costs 6.5, 4.5 with concession.
