Panasonic Museum of Art "20th Anniversary Exhibition Georges Rouault - Form, Color, Harmony"
Georges Rouault (1871-1958) was one of the most innovative painters active in France at the end of the 19th century and the first half of the 20th century. Religious themes, oil paintings in the sparkling colors of his later years, and deformed and familiar figures continue to fascinate many. This exhibition is a full-fledged retrospective of Rouault commemorating the 20th anniversary of the museum's opening. Using the words "form, color, and harmony," which Rouault repeatedly used to describe his art, as keywords, the exhibition explores the appeal of Rouault's decorative forms, touching on contemporary art and social trends influenced by the painter and the relationship between the two world wars.
This exhibition brings together Rouault's masterpieces from museums in France and Japan. Approximately 70 works, including works from the Pompidou Center in Paris, including masterpieces from her later years, "Cute Magician Woman" and "Homo Homini Lupus," letters, and poems by Rouault, will be exhibited for the first time in Japan. It will be one of Rouault's most fulfilling retrospectives in Japan.
