BEAUTY IN JAPANESE

Masaki Miyasako. A Suite. 2008. Mineral colours on paper.72.7 х 90.9.
2 september 2010—27 september 2010
The exhibition presents about 80 works by twelve modern Japanese artists. The exposition gives the Russian viewers the opportunity to see such the great and complete exhibition of the modern Japanese art for the first time.

Alongside with the works displaying the influence of the classical art and the Western avant-garde there are presented the paintings and graphic works inseparably connected with the peculiarities of the national world view. The known Japanese themes (blossoming sakura, Buddhist temples, mountain peaks, hidden in mist) are revealing their sources in the great centuries-old artistic tradition of Japan. The highest quality of execution as well as the circle of traditions used in these oeuvres appeals to the concentrated contemplation and understanding of the concealed philosophical meaning of every work.

In spite of the stylistic distinctions the paintings, water colours and the decorated screens presented on the exhibition are distinguished by the increased attention to the technique and the material side of the work that is indissolubly connected with its spiritual content. The true beauty and harmony that we are often lacking in modern world, is accomplished in these works.

The exhibition is presented by the Gallery Shiraishi, Tokio.
