The parallel is surprising, but particularly expressive! When exhibiting works of Van Gogh next to those of the great Japanese master Utigawa Hiroshige, you’ll find a similar artistic quest. Confusing, no? This original comparison is highlighted at the Pinacothèque de Paris until March 17, 2013. Don’t miss the last few days of this original exhibition in Paris!
Yes, Van Gogh was schizophrenic, but that never stopped him in his search for peace and serenity in his paintings. On the contrary, this has most likely pushed him to be interested in the sense of solidity of his composition. In particular by inspiring himself with the studies of the famous master of Edo: Hiroshige.
Perspectives. That’s what remarkably proves the original exhibition of the Pinacothèque de Paris. Little known in France, Hiroshige will surprise you by his witnesses of the Japanese culture while Van Gogh will reveal himself to you in all the profoundness of his artistic inspiration referring to the Land of the Rising Sun!
