From the Coll Bardolet Cultural Foundation we want to invite you to visit our new temporary exhibition “Navegant entre muntanyes”, an exhibition of Japanese art donated by various collectors; Enrique Juncosa and Jaume Mercante, with the collaboration of the researcher and expert in Japanese art David Almazán.
Among the prints we find creations of the most outstanding artists of Japan from 1760 to 1995:
- Katsushika Hokusai (1760 – 1849) well known for the work; The great wave of Kanagawa, present in our exhibition.
- Utagawa Hiroshige (1797 -1858) who was a great inspiration for Van Gogh who made several reproductions of Utagawa’s works in oil, with the aim of adapting Japanese works to his own language.
- Kobayashi Kiyochika (1847-1915) one of the most prominent artists of the Meji era, his drawing style could be interpreted as a beginning would be the future manga style.
- Toshi Yoshida (1911 – 1995) lived through the Second World War and adapted to the new North American market, he is a benchmark of ukiyo-e in contemporary Japanese art of the s. XX.
