The Echoes of Modern Art Between Japan and France

Marubeni Gallery


Takeji Fujishima, Saburosuke Okada, Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot, Pierre-Auguste Renoir et al.
This exhibition, entitled “The Echoes of Modern Art between Japan and France”, celebrates the opening of the new Marubeni Gallery. To represent the French side, we have selected the two French realism landscape paintings, one by Corot and one by Courbet, in addition to works by French impressionists, symbolists and fauvists such as Renoir, Redon, Dufy, and Vlaminck. Representing the Japanese side, we have selected pieces by such painters as Fujishima Takeji, Okada Saburosuke, Wada Eisaku, Kawashima Riichiro, Umehara Ryuzaburo, Yasui Sotaro, Koiso Ryohei, and Ogisu (Oguiss) Takanori. All of these artists were strongly influenced by French modern artists in the late 19th and 20th centuries. Free from traditional classification, we are exhibiting these works from the Marubeni Collection according to such elements as styles of brushstrokes, colors, and so on. In this way, we review the artistic exchanges, or echoes, between France and Japan in modern and contemporary painting.
