The show

The works on paper or silk present at the MAO are extremely delicate and require, unlike others, a period of rest. For this reason, and to allow visitors to enjoy a constantly renewed exhibition, periodic rotations are carried out, such as the one visible in the gallery dedicated to Japan starting from Saturday 6 June: on the occasion of the reopening, the section of the kakemono is renewed, classic Japanese paintings on vertical scroll, and prints.

 

This new rotation of kakemono has as its subject landscape painting, mainly in ink on paper or on silk, with works that exemplify some expressive modalities of Japanese artists between the 16th and the mid-19th century, whose themes and style reveal in some cases a declared inspiration to the Chinese model, in others an original reworking.

 

Starting from the rarefied scenarios of Sesson Shukei (1504-1589), where a light gilding returns the suffused atmosphere of the mountain wrapped in a vaporous mist, and from the incorporeal and abstract landscapes of the famous Kano Tan'yu (1602-1674), the selection of MAO focuses on several artists active in the first half of the 1800s among which the multifaceted Kishi Ganku (1749 or 1756-1838) stands out, which oscillates between adherence to the sinic model and the typically Japanese themes or pictorial modalities.

 

Simultaneously with the rotation of paintings, the Japanese prints will be rotated on the second floor of the museum, where the second half of the famous "The 53 stations of the Tokaido" series by Utagawa Hiroshige (1797-1858) will be presented. Some famous "stations", such as n. 43 Yokkaichi and n. 45 Shono, have rightly entered the gotha ​​of modern artistic expression recognized internationally.
