Masterpieces of French Landscape Paintings from The Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts, Moscow
This event has ended.
Arriving in Japan from Moscow’s Pushkin Museum, renowned for its exquisite French painting collection, are 65 landscape paintings from the 17th-20th centuries. From romantic images of myth and antiquity to scenes of rustic life and bustling Paris streets, and finally to boundless landscapes of the imagination, the exhibition will trace the development of modern French landscape painting chronologically, region-by-region. The paintings, depicted in varying settings, will evoke earthen fragrances, brilliant sunlight, windswept trees, and urban din. Monet’s “Luncheon on the Grass,” a scene of people in splendid harmony with verdant nature—painted by the 26-year-old artist on the eve of Impressionism’s birth—will appear in Japan for the first time. Also featured will be Lorrain, Boucher, Corot, Renoir, Cezanne, Gauguin, and Rousseau. Amid Ueno’s fresh green verdure, visitors are invited to travel through the beautiful landscapes, radiant with light and color, loved by the great masters.
