CULTURE & TRADITION
The exhibition sheds light on Japanese culture and tells the life and nature of ancient Japan through the great 19th century artists: Hokusai and Hiroshige. The works of art exhibited were produced thanks to the work of carvers of wild cherry wood blocks, inkers and printers who use only mulberry paper, already known in Paris in the mid-nineteenth century as “Japanese paper”. These kinds of production inspired the great authors of Impressionism and Van Gogh, who copied “The Garden of Prunes” and “Evening Rain on the Ohashi Bridge” by Hiroshige. In the exhibition, we will also find the most important works and that are strongly impressed in the collective imagination such as “The Great Wave” and “Mount Fuji” by Hokusai. The period of the year chosen for the exhibition is Hanami, that is the moment when cherry trees are in bloom, giving Japan an aspect of enchanting beauty: Japanese flowers and plants will welcome visitors with a colorful setting and will be analyzed in their traditional symbols. Moreover, the exhibition is completed with a selection of original kimonos and obis, geographic maps created between the 18th and 19th centuries and a flowered folding screen by the Rinpa School
