Japanese Renaissance

October 10th, 2017 2:00 PMtoJanuary 7th, 2018 2:00 PM

The Uffizi Gallery will host an exhibition dedicated to Japanese painting, between the Muromachi era and the beginning of the Edo period (XV – XVII century).

About forty works – depicting landscapes or natural glimpses – will be exhibited in the Magliabechiana Hall of the Uffizi Gallery. The paintings have the classic Japanese format of the large multi-panel screen.

Works represent the deep link that there was between Japanese artists and nature.

The Japanese painting is characterized by two main currents: the first is monochromatic and evocative, linked to Chinese tradition; the second, indigenous, more explicit and immediately enjoyable.
