In the Search of Picturesque Landscapes: From Ancient Rome to Modern Paris
This event has ended.
*Machida City Museum of Graphic Arts will reopen from June 1 (Tue.).
How are #picturesque landscapes made?
Dynamic panoramas of intertwining mountains and rivers, streets which retain traces of the Middle Ages, beautiful pastoral scenes reminiscent of a utopia - painters and printmakers have exercised their ingenuity to capture in a single image the landscapes spread out before them.
This exhibition explores Western landscape art from the 16th to the 19th centuries through printed images, as well as paintings, watercolors, books, photographs, and optical devices. It introduces the styles of landscape art through the ages, from depictions of the ruins of ancient Rome and Egypt to bustling fin-de-siècle Parisian street scenes, and the ways to enjoy them.
from April 24, 2021 to June 27, 2021
