Photographer's Note

RENOIR, MONET, GAUGUIN - IMAGES OF A FLOATING WORLD

The current exhibition fuses the collection of the Museum of Western Art in Tokyo (currently undergoing renovation) with the already impressive collection of works from the same period of the Folkwang.

This basically means that all the big names are there: Monet, Gauguin, Renoir...but also Manet, Pisarro, Van Gogh, Czanne...you name it. And often with works that aren't that familiar to Europeans.

The show runs from February 6 to May 15, 2022.

THIS PICTURE shows the central hall at the Folkwang which features an art installation by Chiharu Shiota. A man walks by. Detail for impressionist buffs: yes, that's a Monet waterlillies painting on the left. Wow!

Chiharu Shiota (1972) is a Japanese performance and installation artist. Her signature installations consist of dazzling, intricate networks of threads stretching across rooms and spaces.
