This event has ended.

Georges Rouault's artistic methods were unconventional even among modern painters. He eschewed the use of canvases and easels, dabbed on more paint before the previous coat had even dried, and left many works unfinished. Thanks to present-day restoration technology, we are slowly beginning to understand the methods behind his legendary production eccentricities. This exhibition dramatically presents the secrets revealed by studying Rouault's works in detail, the mysteries deepened by such findings, and the many puzzling details related to his signature works.

Run away to Paris with Rouault's circus

By C.B. LIDDELL
Special to The Japan Times

Paris in its heyday — between one set of Germans marching in (1871) and another (1940) — is one of those fabled cities that exists forever in the human consciousness; one that is often prefixed with the word "gay," in its earlier and truer sense. Any exhibition that manages to evoke this nostalgic world of cafes, cancan, and carousels is sure to enjoy a warm reception, and "Georges Rouault: Cirque Forain" at the Shiodome Museum in Tokyo's Minato Ward definitely does that.

ルオーは全身像と左上。「踊り子と白い犬」「青いピエロたち」他、明快な色をあざやかに取り合わせた版画には、はっとさせられました。
