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.

This exhibition will introduce viewers to the furniture preserved in the Russian Museum, a collection the public is not very familiar with. It will also open up a new perspective on well-known Russian works of art. What kinds of chairs exist? What are they made of? What do people do while seated? What poses do they adopt? What does an empty chair mean? A synthesis of painting, graphic art, sculpture, applied art, and design, the Russian Museum’s exhibition stimulates ideas on these questions and more.
