Foujita, the exhibition at Paris Maison de la Culture du Japon

Paris Maison de la Culture du Japon, set a stone’s throw from the Eiffel Tower dedicates an exhibition to painter Foujita from January 16 to March 16, 2019. Don’t miss it, especially as the admission is free of charge!

Less than a year ago, the Musée Maillol opened a retrospective-exhibition dedicated to artist Tsuguharu Fujita (1886-1968). We (re)discovered there this French painter, drawer and engraver from Japanese origins who spent the most beautiful years of his life in France, a country he loved and where he rubbed shoulders with the avant-garde.

This time, it’s the Maison de la Culture du Japon’s turn to honor Foujita, an artist of a great aesthetic richness. The idea behind the exhibition? Recreating the entire career of the painter from his moving to Paris in 1913 to his death in 1968. About forty paintings are brought together. Note that most of them come from Japan and are displayed in Paris for the very first time!

So, the tour evolves around five clear parts named Les Débuts Parisiens [Parisian debuts], La Success Story des années 1920 à Paris [The Success Story of the 1920’s in Paris], Voyages en Amérique Latine et au Japon [Travels to Latin America and Japan], Face à la Guerre [Facing the War] and Retour définitif à Paris [Definitive Return to Paris]. They happen in a chronological order through Foujita’s life.

More intimate and extremely thorough, this new exhibition marvelously completes the great retrospective already visited (or missed!) from last year. To be visited!
