"Debussy, Music and the Arts" Exhibition
This event has ended.
Claude Debussy, one of the most famous French composers from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, is perhaps known for his Claire de lune and the symphonic poem La Mer. Debussy was composing at a time when music, art, literature, and the performing arts not only influenced each other. Some artists were also creating collaborative works that spanned art forms. Among composers, Debussy is a prime example. This exhibition focuses on Debussy’s relationships with Impressionism, fin de siècle art, Japonisme, and other currents in the arts to present nineteenth-century French art in a newly compelling way, by presenting about 150 works, the majority lent by the Musée d’Orsay and the Musée de l’Orangerie or from the museum’s own collection, in addition to works borrowed from other collections in Japan and abroad. This exhibition, which commemorates the 150th anniversary of Debussy’s birth, has been jointly collaborated by the Musée d’Orsay, Musée de l’Orangerie, and the Bridgestone Museum of Art.
